Text: (1896-1974) Born in Pearl (Coryell Co.), Alma Ward graduated in Goldthwaite and attended college in Denton, earning a teaching certificate c. 1916. She married James L. Hamrick in 1919; the couple had two daughters. Alma taught in Eastland, McCulloch and San Saba counties for 15 years and had a long career as a writer. Her articles were published in newspapers and international publications. In 1936 she helped found the San Saba Garden Club, and was instrumental in saving San Saba’s historic mill. She chaired the county’s Centennial Committee (1956) and Historical Survey Committee (1962) and researched 19 state historical markers. Her book The Call of the San Saba (1940) remains a seminal work in local history.
