Acquaintances, old and new, among reformers


Brown was the first woman to enter the clergy of any American church (she was ordained a Universalist minister in 1863) and a lifelong suffrage advocate and associate of Susan B. Anthony. She moved to Racine, Wis., in 1878 to head a local church, and was p[resident of Wisconsin's Woman Suffrage Association from 1884 to 1912. This autobiography focuses on her work in the early women's rights movement.
