Biographical information

Mazie B. Hall (July18, 1902-January 1, 2006), born in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, was  an educator, mentor, civil rights activist, and community leader . Miss Hall grew up in the Mt. Pleasant section of Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania with a younger brother, Billy (born in 1906).  Miss Hall’s maternal grandmother was enslaved until the age of eleven in Virginia on the Bumpas Plantation. When her mother, Carrie Watson, relocated to the north, she began working in Chester County, Great Valley, Pennsylvania. This provided the context in which Miss Hall’s parents would meet. Mr. William Isaiah Hall, from a small town near Frankford, Delaware, was a secondary farmer who raised (cultivated) pigs, chickens, a horse, and tended a garden.

Miss Hall graduated from the former Tredyffrin-Easttown High School and West Chester University (then West Chester Normal School) with a teaching certificate in 1924. As a result of the segregation laws upheld in her hometown, Miss Hall’s first teaching opportunity was in Trenton, New Jersey at the New Lincoln School. The school was built in 1924 for Black girls and boys.  She was a passionate educator, who as a child advocate, created innovative mentoring and tutoring programs in her community. Miss Hall taught at Powell Elementary School in Camden for twenty-three years. Her career as an educator also included serving one year as principal at the former Mt.  Pleasant  School in Tredyffrin.

A lifetime resident of Philadelphia’s Main Line, Miss Hall was significantly involved in the civic and community affairs of her community. Her accomplishments include her crusade for fair housing practices in the area. Her efforts helped to influence the formation of the Pennsylvania Fair Housing Act. She was the founder of both the Mt. Pleasant Community Center and the Main Line Business and Professional Women’s Club, for the latter she served as the president.  Additionally, she served  as the chairperson of the YWCA in Mt. Pleasant. Other organizational and institutional commitments included the First Baptist Church of Mt. Pleasant, the Red Cross Board of Directors, Tri-County Concerts Association, the Links, Phi Delta Kappa, Eta Chapter, and the Community Garden Club of Wayne.

As an educator, historian, and civic leader Miss Hall received many awards and certificates. Among them are service awards from the National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Inc.,  the Links, Inc., Kids’ First Now!,  the Second Baptist Church, Wayne, PA., and the National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, Inc.  Other recognitions included the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the House of Representatives Citation, and an award from the Pennsylvania Abolition Society.  On her 98th birthday a park, was dedicated in her name in Mt. Pleasant.  Additionally, the West Chester University maintains a scholarship fund in her honor.

Miss Hall was a longtime contributor to the Suburban and Wayne Times, writing on Black history, poetry and providing personal reflections.
