LIVERMORE, MARY ASHTON. (1820-1905). American journalist, author, reformer and suffragette; the only female reporter at the Republican convention that nominated Lincoln, she also delivered the opening address at the first women’s suffrage convention in Chicago. SP. (“Mary A. Livermore”). 1p. Cabinet. N.p. (Boston), N.d. An uncommon bust portrait by Hardy of Boston darkly signed on the lower portion of the image.

 

Born in Boston, Livermore attended a female seminary in Charlestown before her experiences as a tutor on a Virginia plantation made her an ardent abolitionist and supporter of Lincoln, on whose behalf she campaigned in 1860. She was the only female reporter at the Republican convention that nominated Lincoln, which she covered on behalf of the Universalist newspaper New Covenant, of which her husband was editor. During the Civil War, she provided relief to the wounded, volunteering for the Sanitary Commission, inspecting hospitals and raising money. Livermore’s post-war efforts were on behalf of women’s suffrage and temperance. In 1869, she founded and edited the Chicago feminist journal The Agitator which merged with the Women’s Journal in Boston the following year. She served as president of the Association for Advancement of Women, the American Woman Suffrage Association and the Massachusetts Woman’s Christian Temperance Union.

 

In excellent condition.
