About this Item

[10], 611 pages, well illustrated, pictorial wrappers, 8-1/2 by 11 inches, fine. Introduction by Anita Miller. From the back cover: "The World's Columbian Exposition, held in Chicago in 1893, included amazing exhibits of the results of women's activities - in the arts, in industry, in science and in reform and philanthropic work. Most of these were housed in the Woman's Building, administered, designed and decorated entirely by women. The Board of Lady Managers built not only The Woman's Building, but The Children's Building, a pioneer day care center; and a Woman's Dormitory where shareholding visitors to the Fair could get a room for 40 cents a night. Among the famous women who played a role in the drama of the Fair were the painter Mary Cassatt, Susan B. Anthony, Julia Ward Howe, Lucy Stone, Henrietta Szold, Jane Addams, Harreit Monroe, Frances Willard, Sarah Bernhardt, Clara Barton, Queen Victoria, Helena Modjeska, the African explorer May French Sheldon, the sculptors Vinnie Ream Hoxie and Harriet Hosmer, and the architect Sophia Hayden. The struggles among the women themselves for the domination of the Board; the ambitious and troubled leadership of Bertha Palmer--the politics and passion behind The Woman's Building, are described for the first time in this unique book.
