The late Hannah Mitchell was the very first graduate of the Frontier Graduate School of Midwifery. Ms. Mitchell was born in 1907 and graduated from the midwifery program in 1940.

Ms. Mitchell went on to a career with the Georgia Department of Public Health. While there, she was technical advisor for the documentary, “All My Babies,” which won the Flaherty Citation, the equivalent of an Oscar award for its genre. The instructional film is still used today throughout the world to train midwives. Ms. Mitchell died in October 2000 at the age of 93.
