Farmington State Normal School Hymn Painting, ca. 1914

Contributed by Mantor Library at UMF

Alice Ruth Mullen, class of 1914, presented this hand-painted school hymn to Normal School teacher Carolyn Stone.

Lillian Lincoln wrote the hymn, "O Mother Normal," and several other schooll songs during the history of Farmington State Normal School, now known as University of Maine at Farmington.

Like other school songs, it touts loyalty and pride and takes the form of new lyrics for an existing tune. "O Mother Normal" is sung to the tune of "To Thee, O Country."

Miss Lincoln also wrote a song "Memories" in 1925 about her time at the school.
