Biography Helen Moseley
Just as her life defied many conventions of the day, Helen DuPré Moseley's imaginative art is wholly original and difficult to neatly categorize. A native of Spartanburg, South Carolina, Moseley grew up on the campus of Wofford College, where her father was a professor. After receiving bachelor's and master's degrees from Converse College, she married, gave birth to three children, and lived in typical fashion for genteel early twentieth century Southern ladies. Her husband's sudden death, however, pushed her into unfamiliar realms. After successfully managing her late husband's insurance business, she was named Spartanburg's first female postmaster by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1934, an appointment she held for twenty-one years.
