Lady Missionary - On the staff of Straight University is a "Special Missionary" that was appointed for several years
by the American Missionary Association. The AMA would define the Lady Missionary in the
American Missionary (Vol.
36, Issue 11 Nov. 1882
.) "As we intend to increase the number of our lady missionaries in the South, it is fitting that
we explain our aim in sending them and the methods of their work. Their services are mainly in the home with the
mothers and the children. We regard the home, the school and the church as the pivots of the Christian life, each
most effective when working with the others. A home that is not neat, attractive and pure, cripples the efforts of the
school and the church. If a child spends six hours in a school and eighteen hours in a disorderly and immoral home,
or if a man attends service in a church on Sunday and spends all the rest of the week in that same home, the
progress of both boy and man in the Christian life will be slow indeed. We aim to build up character, and if the school,
the church and the home, co-operate in harmony "according to the effectual working in the measure of every part,"
the product will, under God, be men and women of intelligent minds and pure hearts, happy themselves, useful to
their race and the nation, and ornaments to the church of Christ.

We have appointed Miss A. D. Gerrish as lady missionary in New Orleans, and she entered upon her work there Oct.
1. She will devote her energies with special reference to aiding our work in Straight University and in Central Church,
in accordance with the principles laid down in the foregoing article. There is much benevolent and Christian work to
be done in that great city, and the A. M. A., unable, of course to do it all, must make choice.
