From A Woman of the Century, Fourteen Hundred-Seventy Biographical Sketches Accompanied by Portraits of Leading American Women In All Walks of Life, 1893

Miss Alice S., Foxworthy, educator, born in Mount Carmel, Fleming County, Ky., 22nd, December, 1852. (this differs from the date listed on the death certificate) Through her paternal grandmother, Mary Calvert Foxworthy, she is a lineal descendant of Cecil Calvert, Lord Baltimore, of Maryland. Her early education was received in the Stanford Academy, Stanford, Ky., and there she began her career of teaching immediately after her graduation. In her native State she taught successfully in the Stanford Academy, The Catlettsburg high School and the East Kentucky Normal School. From the last mentioned position she was called to the responsible post of presiding teacher in the Tennessee Female College of Franklin, Tenn. She next received a call to the position of lady principal in the Nashville College for Young Ladies. Since 1884 Miss Foxworthy has occupied that position. Dr. G.W.F. Price, the president of that college, early invested her with full authority, leaving her to work out her ideas in the practical organization and management of the school. Miss Foxworthy's attainments are by no means insignificant. Her school training has been continued and extended by reading and study during the whole of her professional life. In 1890 the University of Nashville, Nashville Tenn, conferred upon her the degree of M.A. Though the duties of principal have gradually withdrawn Miss Foxworthy from class-room work, her intimate acquaintance with each pupil under her care is not lessened. The Sabbath-school class of over one-hundred pupils and the flourishing missionary society which she has built up give her an opportunity for a strong influence in forming the characters under her charge. She is an original and impressive teacher of the Bible. Her religion is a religion of justice and unselfishness, her energy is inexhaustible, her perseverance indomitable. Her close observation, her keen and accurate judgment of men and things, and her long experience as a practical educator place her easily in the first rank of her profession.

Cause of death: Cancer of the uterus and left ovary.
