Suffragist Mary Louise Booth lived in the small village of Yaphank on eastern Long Island. But while her village was small her life was lived on a much larger stage. She was the Secretary of the Women’s Rights Convention with Susan B. Anthony in 1855, an esteemed author who wrote the first History of the City of New York in 1859, and was the founding editor of Harper’s Bazar where she reigned for 22 years. She translated more than 40 books – from history to poetry, fairy tales to economic treatises, working with the leading French writers of the day.
Tricia Foley, noted author of ten life-style publications (Having Tea, The Natural Home, At Home with Wedgwood: The Art of the Table, Williamsburg: Decorating with Style, to name a few), has captured the life and times of Mary Louse Booth in a beautiful new book, Mary L. Booth: The Story of an Extraordinary 19th-Century Woman.
