Historical Information

Maddox Female Seminary was established in Little Rock in 1898 by Presbyterian minister Alvin S. Maddox. He described the school as "non-denominational and non-sectarian, but strictly Christian in all their work." The Little Rock campus was located at the corner of Lincoln and Riverside streets. The school granted college degrees in several departments.

By 1903, the seminary was so successful that it opened a second campus that year in Memphis; according to sources, the school had several hundred students that year. In spite of its success, the Little Rock campus had closed by 1906 and the building was sold to the College of Physicians and Surgeons, who would later merge with the Medical Department of the University of Arkansas to form Univerity of Arkansas Medical Sciences (UAMS).

Maddox then moved to Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and opened a similar school, Crescent College, in the Crescent Hotel, serving as the college's president from 1908 to 1910. The most famous graduate of Maddox Seminary was Effiegene Locke Wingo, who represented Arkansas in the United States House of Representatives from 1930 through 1933.
