Dr. Mary Evelyn Blagg Huey (1922-2017)

A portrait of Dr. Mary Evelyn Blagg Huey is displayed in a place
of honor on the first floor of the TWU Denton campus library bearing
her name. Photograph by Jon Turner. June 28, 2017.
The TWU Libraries pay tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. Mary Evelyn Blagg Huey, who passed away on June 27, 2017.

The first female president of TWU--and the only alumna to hold that post--Dr. Blagg Huey was also an honoree of the Texas Women's Hall of Fame. The TWU Denton campus library was named in her honor.

A photography display curated by Woman's Collection staff members in honor of Dr. Blagg Huey and her decade-long tenure as president of TWU is available for viewing just inside the entrance to the Blagg-Huey Library.
