Biographical / Historical

The Hutcheson and Page families are very representive of the old New England families, many of whom were Mayflower descendents, who prospered in New England and beyond as the nation grew. Within the Hutcheson and Page families, there were well known educators as well as successful businessmen and bankers. And there were activists: Mary Hutcheson Page was an active supporter of women's suffrage and her daughter-in-law, Phyllis Bache Page (Smith College, Class of 1927), worked for access to birth control in the mid-1930s through the organization that was eventually named Planned Parenthood Federation of America in 1939.
