(Jackson County, 1914-1995) Following the death of her parents at age 13, Nunn moved to Glasgow to live with her sister and begin a new life. After high school, she attended Fugazzi Business College, married, and had three children. In the 1940’s, when few women were business owners, she operated several small businesses, including the Glasgow Insurance Agency, Inc. and the Cornelius Credit Agency. In response to doubters, she said, “I bought it to prove that a woman can do anything on Earth she wants to, if she uses good sense.” She helped establish the Glasgow Chapter of BPW and was its first president. In 1950, she re-married and had two children. In 1967, Nunn held a new title, “First Lady of Kentucky.” In this capacity, she committed herself to the needs of the elderly, the young, and worked tirelessly to preserve Kentucky’s landmarks, antiques, and history. As a self-described “professional beggar” for the state, she established the Kentucky Mansion Preservation Foundation, Inc. and raised needed funds for renovation. Nunn continued her efforts with the renovation of White Hall, home of emancipationist Cassius Clay; the Mary Todd Lincoln House; and numerous other buildings, including many in Glasgow. Nunn also encouraged the KY Federation of Women’s Clubs to establish the First Lady miniatures. In 1969, Morehead State University named its newest and largest women’s residence Beula C. Nunn Hall. In 1971, nearly 6,000 members of women’s groups from across Kentucky held a “Beula C. Nunn Day” at Lexington’s Spindletop Hall. President Richard Nixon appointed Nunn to the Council on History Preservation and she received an Honorary Doctorate from Lincoln College in Lincoln, Illinois. Nunn treasured Kentucky and made a commitment to preserve Kentucky’s treasures.
