About

The Lucy Cobb Institute was a secondary school for young women founded by Thomas R. R. Cobb that operated from 1859 to 1931 in Athens, Georgia. In 1876, the Lucy Cobb Institute Messenger began as a monthly paper for the school. Lollie Rutherford and S. M. Kelley edited the Messenger, which featured local events coverage, literary works, and news about the school. In April 1876, Rutherford wrote a two column editorial that provides unique insight into life at the Lucy Cobb Institute. The paper attempted to cut costs by transitioning to a self-printing process, but ceased publication the same year of its founding.
