Noland decides on the name Foxcroft during a summer at England's Oxford University in England.

One fine day, she rides past the estate of a Major Foxcroft. “That’s the name that hit me right! I took it back and kept it,” she says later.

In the following years, Noland studies at the Sargent School of Physical Education at Harvard, works in a gymnasium and schools in the Baltimore area, and then opens a summer camp at Burrland.
