May H Prentice (1857-1935) and The Prentice Memorial Gateway

I am interested in May H Prentice and the Prentice Memorial Gateway at the Kent State University, Kent, Ohio.  I believe that May was from Macomb, Illinois and was the first female faculty member, at Kent, arriving in 1912.  She taught English, the History of Education and School Management.  She retired from teaching in 1930 and continued to live in her house on Willow Street until her death in 1935.

The Memorial Gateway was  dedicated to May on the 15th Jan 1935.

If there is anyone out there that knows anything about May Prentice, her family or more about her association with Kent University, I would love to hear from you.
