Dearborn native Marguerite Bieber Hicks attended the University of Michigan as an undergraduate from 1910 to 1911, finished her B.A. in English at Wayne State University while a housewife in 1935, and completed her M.A. in 1938.  During the 1930s and 1940s, with the help of her longtime partner Thelma James, Hicks amassed a rare collection of books by and about women from the 17th and 18th centuries.
