Inez Beverly Prosser

Inez Beverly Prosser, teacher and school administrator, was the first African-American female to receive a Ph.D in psychology. Inez Beverly Prosser was born to Samuel Andrew and Veola Hamilton Beverly in San Marcos, Texas on December 30, 1895. Her mother was a homemaker and her father was a waiter. Prosser was the eldest daughter and second eldest of eleven. The family moved between several cities early in Prosser’s life, most likely because of the lack of educational opportunity for Blacks in rural Texas during the 1900s. Eventually they relocated to a small town called Yoakum, Texas. To contribute to the household, Prosser started a college fund to support her younger siblings’ education. Of the eleven children, all graduated from high school and six went on to earn college degrees (Warren, 1999, 12). Not much is known of her life before college, however her education track record provides insight as to what type of student Prosser was. For Prosser, who always had her mind set on college the opportunity came when her brother decided that he wanted to get married instead of continuing his education. This soon to be two-time valedictorian did not let her parents down.
