Sophia Hazen was born in Hartford, Vermont, and graduated from Mount Holyoke in 1841. She taught at the Seminary for nine years and was Associate Principal from 1849-1850. In 1851 she married the Rev. David T. Stoddard whom she met while serving as a missionary in Persia from 1850-1859. After his death she was married to William H. Stoddard from 1867 until her death in 1891.
The personal and professional information in the records of Sophia Hazen [Stoddard] include correspondence from 1849-1890; biographical materials including obituaries, tributes and memorial addresses; and biographies of her first husband, David Stoddard, and a published sermon on the life of her brother-in-law, Deacon Charles Stoddard. The materials provide both concise outlines and more elaborate overviews of her teaching career at the Seminary and her missionary work. The tributes are particularly notable for their number and their high commendation of Hazen's work and character.
