Overview

Excerpt from The Life of Frances E. Willard

As the sharer of the intimate life of Frances E. Willard for more than a score of her heroic years, it is at once a pleasure and a privilege to record a few of the memories of this great leader who made the world wider for women and more homelike for humanity. In this sacred task the co-operation of Lady Henry Somerset, Dr. F. W. Gunsaulus, Dr. Newell Dwight Hillis, and many other friends, is gratefully acknowledged.

The accompanying biography is revised and abridged from a memorial volume issued in 1898. Subsequent honors paid to her sainted memory, the transient character of much of the material formerly used, the demand for a smaller book with wider perspective of this life as unique as it was great, and the fact that there is within the reach of the public, no complete record of one of Americas most noble citizens - these comprise a sufficient reason for the appearance of this work.
