Abstract

The year 1894 nearly derailed the vision of Meta Chestnutt Sager, one of the most successful missionary-educators in the history of the SCM, whose legacy has been largely forgotten. Having founded a small school in the Chickasaw Nation five years earlier, she found the flourishing academy threatened by a scheming minister who duped contributors and well-meaning townsfolk. Chestnutt Sager’s life and ministry challenged cultural norms and gender expectations, a struggle that resonates today.
