RETURN TO WOMEN'S INDEX

Mary Rice Livermore

Born: December 19, 1820 - Boston, Massachusetts

   Mary Rice attended the Female Seminary in Charlestown, Massachusetts. December of 1862 she was made co-director of the Chicago branch of the U.S. Sanitary Commission. Through her work with the Sanitary Commission, she became convinced that extending the vote to women was the key to many social reforms, including temperance, and she began to devote an increasing amount of energy to the woman suffrage movement.
