Biographical / Historical

Oseola McCarty was born on March 7, 1908, in Wayne County, Mississippi, near the small town of Shubuta. She was the only child of Lucy McCarty. She never married, never had children, never learned to drive, only had a sixth grade education, yet she became a national heroine.

Miss Ola, as she was known to her family and friends, moved to Hattiesburg, Mississippi, in about 1916, where she lived with her mother, her grandmother (Julia Smith McCarty), and her aunt (Evaline McCarty). Her grandmother died in 1944, her mother in 1964, and her aunt in 1967. After her aunt’s demise, she lived alone for the remainder of her life, in a small wood frame house on Miller Street. She attended Eureka Elementary school, but dropped out in sixth grade to help care for a sick aunt. She earned her living by washing and ironing clothes, and since she was alone in the world, she lived frugally and saved money religiously. By 1995, her savings had grown to approximately $250,000, and she decided to donate a large portion of it ($150,000) to The University of Southern Mississippi to provide scholarships for deserving students. The first McCarty Scholarship was awarded to Stephanie Bullock in 1995. By 2005, seventeen bright young students had benefited from the scholarship, and the number continues to grow. When the story of her generosity was released to the press, money began pouring in to the University for the Oseola McCarty Scholarship Fund, and numerous awards were heaped on Miss McCarty, including the Presidential Citizen’s Medal, the nation’s second highest civilian award. She traveled extensively in the next few years, accepting awards, appearing on television programs, and dropping the ball in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, 1996. She was awarded an honorary doctorate from Harvard University in 1996, and in 1998 she became the first recipient of an honorary doctorate from The University of Southern Mississippi.

Miss McCarty died on September 26, 1999. On October 2, her body lay in state in the rotunda of the Aubrey K. Lucas Administration Building at USM, prior to memorial services later that day. She is interred in Highland Cemetery in Hattiesburg.

Miss Ola’s life was based on simplicity and an abiding faith in God. In 1996, she published a compilation of philosophical sayings that had guided her life, titled Simple Wisdom for Rich Living. In an article regarding her scholarship fund, she is quoted as saying, “When I leave this world, I can’t carry nothing away from here. Whatever I have, it’s going to be left here for somebody. Some child can get their education, to help them along, because you can’t do nothing now unless you get your education. I don’t regret one single penny I gave to the college. The only thing I regret is that I didn’t have that much more to give.”
