Miss Mary G. Ewing, the new President of The Mother Church, is a native of Quincy, Illinois. She received her schooling in that city and in Chicago.

Christian Science was first brought to the attention of her family through the healing of her father, Judge William G. Ewing, after his physicians had said there was no help for him. Her mother, Mrs. Ruth B. Ewing, subsequently became a pupil of Mrs. Eddy and a teacher of Christian Science. Miss Ewing first received instruction in Christian Science from her mother, and later, in 1910, from the Board of Education of the Massachusetts Metaphysical College in a Normal Class, since which time she has taught Christian Science, as well as practiced Christian Science healing.

Miss Ewing served as Second Reader of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Chicago, of which she is a member. From 1918 to 1926 she was a member of The Christian Science Board of Lectureship of The Mother Church. She retired from that Board to become a Trustee of The Christian Science Pleasant View Home and The Christian Science Benevolent Association in Boston, from which positions she resigned in 1931 to become a member of the Bible Lesson Committee, which prepares the Lesson-Sermons used in the Sunday services of Christian Science churches.
