Mary P. Evans Wilson (circa 1867- 1928) was an African American educator and clubwoman active in fighting discrimination in the Boston education school system. She was born in Oberlin, Ohio to Henrietta Leary (1827-1908) and Henry Evans (1817-1886). Mary taught a short time in the District of Columbia school system, like her sister, Anna Evans Murray (1857-1955). She married Bostonian attorney Butler Roland Wilson in 1894.
