When she was a small child, the family (including brothers Robert and John) moved to Lexington, where Frances graduated from Sayre College before going to the Baldwin School in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Vassar College in 1913 and a Master of Arts degree from Columbia University in 1918. She was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Kentucky in 1940. Frances Jewell McVey held several positions at the University of Kentucky, beginning as a professor in the English Department from 1915-1921, then as the Dean of Women from 1921-1923. In 1923, she married then President of UK, Frank LeRond McVey, and is perhaps best known for her role as the First Lady of Maxwell Place. The McVeys were the first President's family to reside in Maxwell Place and Frances Jewell McVey was widely praised for her graciousness as host of many teas and dinners. Her interest in, and recipes for, traditional Kentucky and Southern foods were well known and publicized, as was her knowledge of gardening. McVey was active in many organizations, including the Southern Association of College Women (of which she served as chair in 1918), which worked with the U.S. Food Administration during WWI; the YWCA; the USO; the University of Kentucky Woman's Club; AAUW (American Association of University Women); the Garden Club, and the Vassar Club (she was an alumnae member of the Board of Trustees from 1933-1939). She was often asked to give speeches at club meetings, as well as county section meetings of the Kentucky Homemakers Association. With a background in English literature, it is not surprising that Frances Jewell McVey was also a dedicated author. She wrote serial travel and history pieces, short fiction and essays, many of which were published in magazines of the time. She also published two books, The Literature of Shakerism and Uncle Will of Wildwood (co-authored with her brother, Robert). She also collected, edited and arranged the speeches of Frank LeRond McVey into University is a Place - a Spirit. Frances McVey was stepmother to Frank McVey's three children from his first marriage to Mabel McVey, Frank, Jr., Janet, and Virginia. She was diagnosed with cancer in the fall of 1944 and went to Ann Arbor, Michigan, for emergency surgery. She never fully recovered, and died June 13, 1945. She was interred at Lexington Cemetery.
