Farmer; Teacher; Poet; Suffragist. Papers document an unconventional life, from suffrage campaigns of her youth to the artistic output of her later years. Materials related to Maynard's art and her career as a farmer and educator showcase an unusual set of interests and talents. Maynard retained clippings and correspondence from her difficult tenure at a South Carolina reform school. Papers from the Massachusetts Refomatory for Women feature writing assignments completed by inmates. Creative output includes poetry written largely from the 1930s and 1950s, drawings and prints, and a short memoir. The scrapbooks are exceptional resources for memorabilia, photographs, and clippings from Maynard's time as a suffrage activist, a "farmerette" of the Women's Land Army, and an employee of the Montrose School for Girls.
