Way back in the late 1800s, Mary Camilla Judson was the first Lady Principal of Greenville’s Female College, which would later become Furman University. Over a hundred years later, a bookstore under her name would make a partnership with Furman’s first female president Elizabeth Davis to give Furman a place downtown.
