This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Marseille, Illinois, on March 15, 1882, Mary Gordon Rollo was the daughter of Alexander and Mary (Harper) Rollo.  Graduating from the local high school in 1901, she was then a student at the Art School, Oberlin College, in 1901-1902.  She then began full time study at the Art Institute of Chicago.  While in attendance there she was a pupil and graduate in Ceramic Art with Evelyn Bracket Beachy; a pupil in ceramics with Virtorine Jenkins; she also studied watercolor painting with Frederick W. Freer and was a pupil in the life course with John H. Vanderpoel.

After her graduation from the Art Institute in 1905, she returned to her family home in Marseille, Illinois, where she maintained a private studio until 1915 when she was hired as the Director of the School of Art at Christian Female College, Columbia, Missouri (now Columbia College).  She held that position through 1919.  

She was hired by the Fine Arts Department at Ohio Wesleyan later that same year and became an important part of their curriculum as an instructor in art for the next twenty one years, retiring in 1940.  She died on July 10, 1959, at her home in Marseille, Illinois.  

This information came from the archives of the University of Missouri, Columbia.  Also information provided by the Marseille, Illinois Public Library.
