Clarice Campbell was born in 1907 in California. After college graduation, she became an English and history teacher in the Pasadena public schools.
After the death of her husband in 1959, Campbell took a leave of absence to be a guest instructor at two different Methodist schools — Claflin College in Orangeburg, South Carolina, and Rust College in Holly Springs, Mississippi.
From 1963 to 1965, she taught at Tougaloo College in Jackson, Mississippi. Earning her doctorate in history at the University of Mississippi in 1969, she then served as the Chairman of the History Department of Rust College from 1969 to 1978.
She retired from teaching in 1978 and became the historian-in-residence at Mississippi Industrial College in Holly Springs. She died in 2000 in Tupelo. Her Civil Rights Chronicle is part stories, part autobiography, and a history of troubled times. It was published in 1997.
