SAVANNAH, GA, October 06, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Mary Aswell Doll with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Dr. Doll celebrates many years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Having accrued two decades of indelible experience in the field of education, Dr. Doll in 2000 became a professor of liberal arts at the Savannah College of Art and Design. A talented and tenured English language educator who began her career at Garrison Forest School in Garrison, Maryland, in 1962, she eventually transitioned toward academia, when she was acquired as an instructor at the State University of New York at Oswego in 1978. Dr. Doll later held teaching appointments at the University of the Redlands, Tulane University and Our Lady of Holy Cross College. During her teaching career, she taught various courses, including World Mythology, which was inspired by the late Carl Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who founded analytical psychology.
During the 1980s, Dr. Doll devoted much of her free time to exploring archetypal psychology in the work of Irish novelist Samuel Beckett. In fact, her efforts were later published in a Samuel Beckett Journal through the Samuel Beckett Society. Much of her research, Dr. Doll noted, stemmed from both literature and archetypal psychology.
As an author, Dr. Doll has published several books, including "Beckett and Myth: An Archetypal Approach (Irish Studies)" and "Like Letters in Running Water: A Mythopoetics of Curriculum (Studies in Curriculum Theory Series)." She also edited "The Reconceptualization of Curriculum Studies: A Festschrift in Honor of William F. Pinar." Several of her book covers were illustrated by her former students, with one featuring a photograph of her father and another showing her mother. Dr. Doll's latest work, which she hopes to have published soon, will be titled as "Carl Jung in Education."
A community leader during the 1980s, Dr. Doll was involved as the chairperson of the Beckett's Archetypal Imagination during 1981. She later served as the president of the Democratic Committee in Fulton, New York, as the secretary of the board directors of the United Way of Fulton, and as the president of the board directors of Fulton Library between 1983 and 1985. As a commitment to her field, Dr. Doll has been affiliated with several industry-related organizations, including the American Academy of Religion, the National Council of Teachers of English, the Professors of Curriculum and the Samuel Beckett Society. She is also a former chairperson of the northeast chapter of the Modern Language Association and is a board director of the Thomas Wolfe Society.
Dr. Doll studied at Connecticut College, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in 1962. She later received a Master of Liberal Arts at Johns Hopkins University in 1972 and a Doctor of Philosophy at Syracuse University in 1980. Dr. Doll was acknowledged with a Presidential Fellowship from the Savannah College of Art and Design. She also secured a research grant from State University of New York. Dr. Doll retired from SCAD in 2020 as Emerita Professor.
