Sue Harper Mims: From Southern Belle to Southern Pioneer, Part II

Part I of this article was posted on the Longyear Museum website in early April 2012.  It offers a glimpse of Sue Harper’s upbringing in Mississippi, her prominent role as the wife of Major Livingston Mims in Atlanta, and the encounter with Christian Science that brought her gracious deliverance from fifteen years of suffering to robust health. Part II describes her indomitable faith and defiance of convention as she went on to become a “formidable exponent” of Christian Science in the South and other parts of the country, and an important pioneer in the early Christian Science movement.
