House Bio: Dr. Grace Fox is widely regarded as one of the pioneering architects of FSU’s athletic success. Dr. Fox first came to Tallahassee in 1924 when she enrolled at Florida State College for Women earning a degree in physical education. Her career included a stint as the president of the National Education Association’s division for girls’ and women’s sport. In 1947, Dr. Fox was named to the Athletic Committee making her the first female in the country to serve on a committee that governed men’s intercollegiate sports. At her passing, Dr. Fox donated her house and 3.5 acres of land jointly to FSU and SSF. SSF bought FSU’s interest in the land and completely renovated the house, including converting the garage space into a triple room with a bathroom, opening it for students in 2014. It primarily serves upperclassmen and graduate students from FSU and FAMU.
