Autograph Note Signed on Visiting Card, n.p., n.d.

Under her printed name, Wheeler writes, “Because I [?] a dear ‘Schoolgirl’ of any one in Smith College I write for you with pleasure, Cora Stuart Wheeler.” A Smith College student or graduate may have asked Wheeler for her autograph. Wheeler is included in “A Woman of the Century” which lists 1470 biographical sketches of prominent 19th century American Women, compiled by Frances Willard and Mary Livermore, published in 1893. In their introduction, the editors claim the, “nineteenth century is woman's century.” The reference tool was intended to fill a “Vacant niche in the reference library.”.
