Tina T. Tuff, a blogger for Australian magazine Gay News Network, wrote a column about Mary Woolley and Jeannette Marks and their years at Mount Holyoke College.

Jeanette Marks was a pupil eleven years Woolley’s junior. Woolley took a ‘special interest’ in her young, clever charge, and the pair fell madly in love."
