Mary Hiester Reid (born Reading, Pennsylvania, 1854; died Toronto, Ontario, 1921) was an American painter and teacher.Mary studied painting at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts where she met her husband Canadian artist George Agnew Reid. During the 19th and early 20th century, at the time of her schooling, women were rarely allowed to pursue art as a career. If they attended art school, they were often not taught the same material as men.
