Nutting, Sarah Hubbard (1822-1914) | Archival Collections at Wheaton College

Name: Nutting, Sarah Hubbard (1822-1914)

Historical Note: Sarah Hubbard Nutting - Born in 1822 in Massachusetts, Nutting was the daughter of Joseph Danforth and Lucinda Keep Nutting. As a young woman Sarah Hubbard Nutting injured herself by over lifting and became for years an invalid with small hope of active life. While confined to a reclining position she taught herself drawing in which she soon excelled. Partially recovering in 1845 she married Rufus (6/14/1820-5/18/1876), son of Mary Barrett Hubbard (4/28/1786-9/6/1847) and William Nutting, Jr., Esq. (1779-1863) of Randolph Center, Vermont. For some years she had been teaching drawing in the Academy at Randolph. She had also became proficient in oil painting. At Wheaton she soon became Principal of the Art Department a position she held until she was eighty though often tendering her resignation before that. Her Department supplied Art teachers for many schools in the surrounding region and set a high standard of excellence. At eighty she moved to Benzonia, Michigan, near her son Wallace, where she has since superintended a forty acre farm besides some art teaching and other activities unusual for one of her years. She also spent time in Randolph, Vt. and Wheaton, Illinois.
