Biographical or historical data
Mildred Florence Campbell, daughter of Samuel G. and Lottie Behmer Campbell, was born in Logansport, Indiana on April 5, 1906. The family moved from Logansport to Greenfield, Indiana when Campbell was three years old. From there Campbell's family moved to the Southside of Indianapolis, finally settling in the Irvington neighborhood in 1917. She graduated from Shortridge High School in 1928. Campbell earned an A. B. at Butler College and a M.A. in Biology at the University of Michigan. She did additional graduate work at the University of Illinois with an emphasis on ecology. Campbell taught at Arsenal Technical High School in Indianapolis for two years before accepting a teaching position at Shortridge High School where she remained for forty years. She was a member of the Indiana Audubon Society and in 1947 served as the editor of their yearbook. The Indiana Audubon Society awarded Campbell the Earl Brooks Award, "for the advancement of conservation of natural resources in Indiana." She died May 12, 1994.
