Tifton Women’s Faces Exhibit Opens Thursday

A new exhibit which features women from all walks of life who lived in Tifton opens with a 5:30 p.m. reception Thursday at The Gallery of the Georgia Museum of Agriculture at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.  One of those to be featured by the Twentieth Century Library Club will be Naomi Chapman Woodroof, wife of ABAC’s first president, Jasper Guy Woodroof.  She was the first female student and the first female graduate of the University of Idaho College Of Agriculture.  She was also one of the first two women in the United States to hold a college degree in Agriculture.  Woodroof was the first female scientist at the Georgia Experiment Station and the first state-employed plant pathologist at the Coastal Plain Experiment Station in Tifton.  She was sometimes called “the Barefoot Pathologist.” The exhibit will also feature a collection of face jugs by Danielsville potters Pat Shields and Janice Hall.
