After studying theology with Hosea Ballou and serving both Universalist and Unitarian churches in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and Cleveland, Albany, and Cincinnati, Mayo devoted four years to a ministry of education through fourteen of the sixteen southern states. He concluded that women teach all scholastic levels better than men and that “the present opportunities for education are woefully inadequate for both races.”
