Columbia Female Institute?[edit]

I think it likely that the school that Lizzie Crozier attended in Columbia, Tennessee, was the Columbia Female Institute, which currently is covered tangentially in Athenaeum (Tennessee). That school appears to have been significant in the history of the education of women in the South, but the article focuses on the extant building remaining from the school, rather than the school. At some point, I hope that an article will developed on the history of the school, including information on notable alumni. I'm noting this here in hopes that it inspires someone to sort out this particular detail regarding Lizzie Crozier French. --Orlady (talk) 19:46, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Crozier-French vs French[edit]

There were several places where the article referred to her as "Crozier-French." People didn't hyphenate last names that long ago, and I've seen no evidence that Lizzie Crozier French used the hyphen herself. I was going to simply take out the hyphens, but "Crozier French" just looked wrong, so I changed them all to plain "French." If there's a source showing she hyphenated, I'll gladly stand corrected and change them all back. Dunncon13 (talk) 16:17, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

She may not have hyphenated, but she used both names (example: [1]). Bms4881 (talk) 19:51, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
