Azalea Martin, a native of Valley Falls, Kansas was a Teacher Education professor at Lincoln University from 1930 to 1957. She received her undergraduate degree from Fisk University and earned her Masters in Education at Columbia University (NY) in 1930 and came to Lincoln the same year. Ms. Martin was one of the original “Black Harvard of the Mid-West” faculty members and she had a profound influence on her students for many years. At her retirement in 1957, she was lauded by Dr. Sidney Reedy as, "an example for all students to emulate." Martin Residence Hall on the Lincoln University campus is named in her honor.
