Description: Born on March 28, 1914, Dr. Eleanor Byrd Walters was the oldest of four children, all daughters, born to Jerry Edward Walters and Mary Louise Loudie Boyd Walters, in Gunnison, Mississippi. Her father was a levee surveyor on the Mississippi River as well as a farmer. When Dr. Walters was growing up, her father planted mainly cotton. Living next to the Mississippi River levee, she had a fun-filled childhood, listening to the radio, playing with her sisters and their paper dolls, reading, and attending the Gunnison public school, which sometimes included being ferried in her father's motorboat on the Mississippi River to school.
