Biographical Note

Galloway College was a Methodist institution for young women, located in Searcy, Arkansas. The school opened in 1889, and was named for Bishop Charles B. Galloway. At one time, Galloway College was said to be the largest school for females in the South. In 1930, Galloway was merged with two other Methodist institutions of learning, Hendrix College in Conway and Henderson-Brown College in Arkadelphia, to form the "Trinity System of Education." Galloway College closed in 1933, and the property was was purchased by the Church of Christ. Harding University now occupies the former site of Galloway College.
