Eleanor Terry Solomon Gwynn was born in Charlottesville, VA., on October 3, 1906. She attended the Albemarle Training School for the early grade and Junior Hi School subjects, and graduated from this school.

She enrolled at Hampton Institute in a four-year course of Home Economics, and graduated in June 1925, in the same class with her friend Charles E. Gwynn.

In the Fall of 1925-1926, she taught the 3rd grade in a county school in Wake Forrest, VA., and from 1926 to 1928, she taught the 4th grade at Fessenden Academy, Ocala, Florida. It was here that she re-joined her Hampton Institute classmate and friend, and they were married September 28, 1926.

In 1928-1929 she and her husband taught at Edward Waters College, Jacksonville, Florida. From 1929 to 1932, they were together at Allen University, Columbia, S. C. From 1934 to 1935 they worked together at the Glen Burnie, MD. training school for girls, where she taught Home Economics and Domestic Science, and was the Matron.

After 1935 she gave her full time to her family as a devoted wife and mother.
