The story of Jane Stanford, told in her own words through letters that offer a view of the world at the turn of the century. They tell of this remarkable woman's ardent commitment to husband, education, and equal rights for both sexes, they reveal an independent, sometimes lonely, woman whose husband was caught up in his profession, first as a business magnate, then as a state senator. They expressed the anguish of a mother over the loss of her only child, born to her late in life, and of her dog, single-handed effort to save the university that she and her husband had foundered in memory of that child. This book was originally published as Jane Stanford: her life and letters, and this is the revised edition.
