Indomitable Defense

On one of the right angles formed by the intersection of the perfectly staight lines of Richardson and Blanding Streets in downtown Columbia, Mother Superior Baptista Lynch of the Ursuline Convent and Academy was responsible for the practical and moral education of over two hundred young women, and the indomitable defense of their procreative power in a fallen world.

A sister of the Bishop, she had come to the South Carolina from Ohio, arriving on the first of September, 1858.
