This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Frances Ruth Carpenter (b. 1882-d.1963)

Born Sept. 12, 1882 at Elberton, Ga., Frances Ruth Carpenter was a college art teacher and an artist.  After receiving a diploma from the State Normal School in Athens, Ga., she taught for six years in the Griffin, Ga., public school system.  She then attended Columbia University teacher’s college for two years, earning a bachelor’s diploma and a bachelor of science degree in 1912, followed by a master of arts degree, with post-master’s work in portrait painting, studying one month at Heatherly School of Art in London, and one month at Provincetown in Browne Art Class. 

She taught art from 1913-1949 at Georgia State Woman’s College, Valdosta, Ga., now Valdosta State University.  After retirement, she returned to her family home in Elberton and painted as an avocation.  Her art is in oil on canvas, mostly landscapes from local surroundings at her home in Valdosta, Ga., and later in Elberton.  Her work is primarily in the hands of descendants, with two known to be in the collection of Valdosta State University.
