Educator Frances Hall Rousmaniere Dewing was born in 1877 in Roxbury, Massachusetts. She received an A.B. (1900) and a Master's degree in philosophy (1904) from Wellesley College. In 1906 she earned a Ph.D. in philosophy from Radcliffe College. Prior to her marriage to Arthur Stone Dewing in 1910, she taught philosophy and psychology at Mount Holyoke College (1906-08) and Smith College (1908-10). Dewing's activities focused on her family until 1943-45, when she taught experimental mathematics at Bennington College. She was a popular instructor, and although she did not teach again after 1945, she continued to think and write about education and educational methods until her death in Cambridge, Massachusetts on February 20, 1964.
