Ellen Bliss Talbot
American philosopher. Professor of philosophy at Mount Holyoke College (1898-1932). According to Dorothy Rogers and Therese B. Dykeman, she was "a Cornell alumna, earned her doctorate in 1898. Talbot went directly into teaching, first at Emma Willard’s school in Troy, New York, then at Mount Holyoke College in western Massachusetts. Like Anna Julia Cooper, she lived an incredibly long life (1867–1968) and she had a successful academic career, chairing Mount Holyoke’s philosophy department for thirty-two years and teaching part-time for several years after retirement. She published just three books, all on Johann Gottlieb Fichte (1898, 1899, 1906), in addition to her considerable number of articles in The Philosophical Review, Mind, and The American Journal of Psychology. Her commitment to women’s education at Mount Holyoke was unwavering, helping to ensure that the philosophy curriculum met the expectations of her fellow academicians as philosophy established itself as a profession." From "Introduction: Women in the American Philosophical Tradition 1800–1930," in Hypatia 19:2 (Spring 2004): viii-xxxiv.
