Margaret Fuller's New England

FullersFootstepsMargaret Fuller was an author, editor, journalist, educator, and women's rights advocate. Today, we consider her one of the guiding lights of the first wave of feminism in America.

She was the first editor of the Transcendentalist newspaper The Dial and the author of the landmark Woman in the Nineteenth Century. She was the first woman journalist and the first literary editor for a major American newspaper (New-York Tribune), the first woman foreign correspondent, and the first to serve in that capacity during wartime (Italian Revolution). Before Margaret Fuller died tragically in a shipwreck at the age of 40, she planned to lead a truly intercontinental life, contributing her many gifts to reform movements and revolutions in America and Europe.

This 24-page, saddle wire, illustrated self-guided trail guide documents places throughout New England where Margaret Fuller lived, worked, and visited including sites in Concord, Cambridge, and Boston, Massachusetts, and points west, north, and south of the city. There are also sites in Rhode Island and New Hampshire. The trail was written and designed by Bonnie Hurd Smith for the Margaret Fuller Bicentennial in 2010 from biographies by Joan von Mehren and Charles Capper. It features dozens of historical photographs and quotes from Fuller's work. Part of the proceeds from sales return to the Bicentennial committee for future projects.

Rosemary's Memoirs booklet

Rosemary-memoirRosemary says in the introduction, "I remember reading that Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony felt an obligation to put the history of the suffrage movement into some kind of permanent form so that the story could be passed on to the next generation. They did not want the story of their struggles to be lost to history. An overwhelming task, they began in 1876 and finished the first four volumes in 1900 while they were both in their eighties. I wrote the first draft of this article in the fall of 1996 prompted by the constant questioning I received from ila Buenavidez-Heaster, convenor of the UUA Pacific Central District Women & Religion Task Force. How did it all begin? Who was involved? Was it difficult? What obstacles did you encounter? And: You've got to put this in writing so others will know."

 

Rosemary Matson was awarded an honorary doctorate from Starr King in 2011. PHOTOS

 

Rosemary passed on in September of 2014. Liz Fisher wrote a tribute to her.
