Agnes Mantor (1895-1971), a longtime teacher at Farmington State Teachers College, was a woman of many interests and accomplishments.
One of the college's few Democrats, Mantor was active on many political and business committees. In 1935, she left her teaching post on a two-year leave of absence to serve as the State Director of Women's Projects for the Maine division of the Works Progress Administration.
Upon her return to the school, she was appointed Dean of Women, and taught history. She authored books on Maine history and pioneered innovative Maine travel courses to introduce students to historical sites around the state.
