Born: 1882, Died: 1966

Born in Philadelphia to Robert and Margaret Alexina (Harrison) Fulton, Margaret Fulton Spencer resided in California for a number of years before returning to the Philadelphia area to attend Bryn Mawr College. However, she only stayed at Bryn Mawr for two years before transferring to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she spent some three years, graduating in 1911. In addition to this degreed training Spencer studied interior decoration for two years (ca. 1903) and landscape architecture (1911).

By 1912 Spencer was employed by Frank Miles Day in Philadelphia. Married to American Impressionist painter Robert Spencer (1879-1931), Margaret Spencer, who was a painter herself, moved to Arizona in 1939.
