Jane Maud Campbell was born in Liverpool, England. Campbell's family moved to the US when she was 12, and she later returned to Great Britain, graduating from the Ladies' College of Edinburgh University and the Edinburgh School of Cookery and Domestic Economy. Campbell returned to the United States and worked in libraries, eventually becoming head of public libraries in Passaic, New Jersey. Increasingly concerned with the plight of newly arrived immigrants, Campbell became active in providing library and educational services to immigrants.
