Old News-New News

I have spent the last months doing extensive research on Emma’s life. I have learned more about her family (especially her siblings); have found a letter in the Library of Congress from her to Carl Schurz, the Secretary of the Interior: see his reply to her); believe she befriended a famous Native American woman who was lecturing in San Francisco; have discovered she used several different names; found out she was fired from her job at the Women’s Pavilion and replaced by a Philadelphia woman; found out that she called herself a journalist until her incarceration in a mental hospital in California; learned she may have raised greyhound dogs; obtained her death certificate. I will be traveling to California next month to visit her grave site and see if there is any information about her at the mental hospital.
