This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Nebraska on Jan. 15, 1888, Hodges was educated at the University of St Louis and Columbia University.  Upon moving to the Monterey Peninsula in 1912, she studied at the Carmel Art Institute.  From 1917 to 1932 she taught in the Los Angeles public schools.  She started a greeting card company called House of K.H.S.  in Los Angeles together with Vivian Stringfiled and Fannie Kerns.  They made handpainted greeting cards, using wood block print methods, for all seasons of the year.   Inspired by the Arts & Crafts Movement and incorporating modernist aesthetics, they used their skills to produce wonderful one-of-a-kind cards.

Not only were they friends, artists, and business owners, they took part in a three woman exhibit at the Museum of History, Science, and Art, Los Angeles  (now LACMA) in 1918 titled An Exhibit of Decorative Landscapes by Fannie M Kerns, Vivian F. Stringfield, and Marjorie Hodges.

After her marriage to Robert Doolittle in 1932, she returned to the Monterey Peninsula where she further studied with Armin Hansen and Ralph Johonnot. Working in oil and watercolor, she produced landscapes of the Monterey Peninsula, Mother Lode country, and Mexico.

She died in Monterey on Dec. 26, 1972.
