Mary Grimes Hutchison (1872-1962), a pioneer in rigorous education for
girls in Memphis, opened her school in the Wesley Halliburton home in
1902. By 1925, Hutchison School had become a leading girls' college
preparatory school, and its expanding enrollment led to its relocation at
1925 Union Avenue. Upon Miss Hutchison's retirement, Dr. and Mrs. W.
R. Atkinson purchased her school and in 1954 converted it to a non-profit
corporation. A decade later the school moved to 1740 Ridgeway Road.
Stressing academic excellence, Christian values, honor and integrity,
athletics, community service, and the fine arts, Hutchison has been
educating leaders in the professions and in civic responsibility for more
than 100 years. (WTHS)
