Mary Eleanor Morris Scholarship

Mary Eleanor Leonard Morris was born in West Liberty, Ohio on April 8, 1892. She went to Oxford College for Women in Oxford, Ohio, where she met her husband, James Relle Morris. Married in 1914, they settled in London, England, where both did extensive volunteer work in hospitals in the lead-up to World War II, administering to American Soldiers. Upon the death of her mother in 1936, Mrs. Morris returned to West Liberty to be of help to her father. Mr. Morris’ work eventually took him to California, and Mrs. Morris divided her time between California and Ohio. When Mr. Morris died in 1967, Mrs. Morris returned to West Liberty permanently. Through her estate, Mrs. Morris created this fund to support work in her home community in Logan County, Ohio.
