Abstract: The purpose of this study was to present a professional biography of Ethel Loroline Martus Lawther. The writer attempted to trace and identify the professional contributions of Ethel Loroline Martus Lawther and to show the resulting influences on physical education. To accomplish this objective, it was necessary to consider three supplementary problems: 1. to trace the development of the achievements and professional activity of Mrs. Lawther during the preparation for and the early years of her teaching career; 2. to study the major developments of the School of Health, Physical Education and Recreation at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and to make critical assessment of her role as its chief administrator; 3. to document her contributions to physical education through leadership positions in professional associations.
