Biographical/Historical note

Anne Rhea Bachman Hyde was born in New Providence Church, Hawkins County, Tennessee May 4, 1868, the third of ten children of Dr. Jonathan Waverly Bachman and Mrs. Evaline Dulaney Bachman. Her father, a Presbyterian minister and Civil War veteran, brought his family to Chattanooga when Anne was a child. In her youth she was a student at Rogersville College. Mrs. Hyde graduated from Chattanooga High School and attended the Sayre Institute in Lexington, Kentucky, graduating in June of 1886. Growing up, Mrs. Hyde assisted her father in his church work, and was involved, after her marriage, in civic organizations during the Spanish-American War and World War I. In January 1889 she married Charles Robert Hyde, a Presbyterian minister. His pastorates moved them all over the country, including pastorates at St. Louis, Richmond, Virginia, Charleston, South Carolina, and Little Rock, Arkansas, Reverend Hyde retired 1924. They had one son, John Bachman Hyde, born in 1890. She also helped raise two nephews, sons of her sister, Mary Anderson.

During her life, Mrs. Hyde held the position of Historian-General of the United Daughters of the Confederacy for several years, and wrote a history of the organization. She also held the positions of state secretary, state historian, and Chaplain of the Tennessee Daughters of the American Revolution. During World War I she was first vice-president of the Chattanooga Unit’s Tennessee Chapter of Woman’s Committee on the Council of Defense. She wrote many articles on history, corresponded with families of soldiers killed during World War I, was active in local organizations, and acquired during her life a large book collection, of which she donated to the University of Chattanooga (later, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga) in 1951. Notable among her writings are “An Historical Account of the United Daughters of the Confederacy,” and “The Battle of Shiloh.” She was a frequent lecturer on wartime and other historical subjects. Her research interests included local historical topics such as the Brainerd Mission, the Blackburn School, Nancy Ward, John Ross, and the Cherokee removal.

Dr. Charles Hyde passed away in 1933. Mrs. Hyde passed away in 1959 after an illness.
