Growing up in Boston’s Gilded Age: The Journal of Alice Stone Blackwell, 1872-1874
The only child of women's rights leaders Lucy Stone and Henry Blackwell, Alice Stone Blackwell was fourteen years old in 1872, when she began a diary. She was a lively, willful, intellectually precocious girl who tried to carve out her own identity while growing up in the midst of the strong personalities and commitments of her family and their Boston circle. Her two-year journal, edited, annotated, and introduced by Marlene Deahl Merrill, is both an engaging account of adolescence and a historically significant document about the popular culture, family life, and reform issues of the Victorian era. Originally published by Yale University Press, and winner of several awards, the book is now published by the Dorchester Historical Society.
