She lost most of her sophomore year of high school to a case of retinitis and dropped out of school in the middle of her senior year; she had enough credits to be accepted into Whitman College. Randlett graduated from Whitman in 1947, with a degree in political science. Randlett's photos first received national attention in 1949; later that year, she married Herbert Randlett, an accountant. Mary and her husband moved into their Woodway house; over the next six years, Mary had four children. Randlett's career did not begin in earnest until 1963, when her children were in school. In 1964, she walked into the University of Washington Press with a Roethke photograph which was the beginning of a relationship that lasted for more than 35 years. In 1972, Mary was divorced; her children grown, she moved to Alexandria, Virginia, where she lived for three years. In 1975, she moved back to the Northwest; in 1997, Mary moved to a home in Olympia, where she set up a darkroom) - http://www.historylink.org/File/3844
