Biographical Information

(Esther) Marguerite Hall Albjerg was born to Coumbus H. and Theodora Parks Hall in 1895 in Franklin, Indiana. She recieved a Bachelor of Arts from Franklin College (1917) and a Master of Arts (1922) and PhD (1925) from the University of Wisconsin. She was the first woman to hold the University of Wisconsin's prestigious President Adams Fellowship. After receiving her PhD, Hall served as the head of History at the Alabama State College for Women until 1927, when she married Victor Lincoln Albjerg. Hall Albjerb was an instructor at Purdue University from 1927-1951 in the History Department, where her husband was a member of the faculty. Although she was unable to serve as a faculty member in the History Department because of her husband's position, Albjerg was later offered a counselor position by the Dean of Women. She authored four books and nearly 30 articles. Dr. Albjerg's daughter Patricia Parks (Albjerg) Graham (1935) later became a professor as well. Albjerg passed away in Lafayette, Indiana, in 1971.
