Stoddard was President of the Texas Woman’s Christian Temperance Union, and Secretary of the Board of Regents of the College of Industrial Arts. Apart from her services in these offices, she worked tirelessly for both prohibition and expanding opportunities for education. More information on her role in the history of Texas during the late 19th century can be found from the web site of the Texas State Historical Association. The text of “A Sketch of Her Life” by Kate Patterson of Oklahoma City is included in this volume. .
This copy is inscribed by Helen Stoddard on the front free endpaper with a warm greeting “To my friend Mary I. Slade M.D.” We believe this to be Dr. Mary Ione Slade (1850-1923), on the staff of the Castile Sanitarium, founded by Jabez Green in 1849 as the Castile Water Cure. [An Annotated Catalogue of the Edward C. Atwater Collection of American Popular Medicine and Health Reform, Volume 3 p. 128, Christopher Hoolihan, Ed.] Slade obtained her medical degree from the University of Michigan in 1879 and joined the staff of the Sanitarium that same year. .
