Pioneers of women's education in the United States: Emma Willard, Catherine Beecher, Mary Lyon by Willystine Goodsell( Book )

14 editions published between 1931 and 1985 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book attempts to fill an existing need for an account of the part played in the historical development of American education by certain outstanding women. The biographies of these pioneers are recounted rather fully and the more significant of their writings, already becoming rare, have been brought together in convenient form. It is to be hoped that instructors of the history of education will continue and extend a practice, here and there begun, of devoting some consideration to the material question of the education of women in bygone times and to the signal services rendered by women to the improvement of that education. - Preface

Common sense applied to religion, or, The Bible and the people by Catharine Esther Beecher( )

14 editions published between 1857 and 2010 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The theological theories referred to, as seemingly opposing the moral sense and common sense of mankind, are those that relate to the foundation principle on which the training of mind is to start. They involve the most practical questions of every-day life, both as to individual responsibility and to the education of the young. These theories, then, are to be examined and tested by the laity as much as by theologians, and especially are they to be examined and decided on by woman, as the heaven-appointed educator of infancy and childhood. In this examination, these theories are to be tested, not by the decisions of ecclesiastical bodies, nor by the writings of theologians, but by those principles of reason and common sense, and those laws of language, which guide mankind in all other practical and personal duties. In order to this, these principles must be evolved and stated in simple and popular form, for particular application on these questions; for no man or woman can decide whether a thing agrees with, or is contrary to the moral sense, or to the principles of reason and common sense, till they clearly perceive what those principles are, and have learned to apply them appropriately. The leading object of this volume is, then, to present these principles in a popular form, and to make it apparent that they can be practically employed by the laity in deciding what is truth, both as to the claims of the Bible as containing authoritative revelations from the Creator, and also as to the true interpretation of it"--Introduction.

19 editions published between 1850 and 2016 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book relates the very personal story of Delia Salter Bacon (1811-1859), who had been a student of Beecher's at her Hartford Female Seminary, and her friendship with Alexander MacWhorter, identified in the book as Mr. A., a Yale theological graduate ten years her junior. In 1847, after two years and no prospect of marriage between the two, Leonard Bacon, Delia's brother and pastor of New Haven's First Church (Congregational), brought misconduct charges against MacWhorter in the New Haven ministerial association. Although MacWhorter was acquitted by a narrow margin, both their reputations were tarnished. However, Delia Bacon was further damaged by Beecher's well-meaning attempt to defend her in print. She moved to England where she continued to write, founding the Baconian and group theories of Shakespeare authorship which still continue to this day, all the while withdrawing gradually from public life. She became increasingly mentally unstable as time passed; she died in 1859 at the Hartford (CT) Retreat for the insane."

The American woman's home by Catharine Esther Beecher( Book )

20 editions published between 1869 and 2019 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American woman's home, originally published in 1869, was one of the late nineteenth century's most important handbooks of domestic advice. The result of a collaboration by two of the era's most important writers, this book represents their attempt to direct women's acquisition and use of a dizzying variety of new household consumer goods available in the post-Civil War economic boom. It updates Catharine Beecher's influential Treatise on domestic economy (1841) and incorporates domestic writings by Harriet Beecher Stowe first published in The Atlantic in the 1860s. Today, the book can be likened to an anthology of household hints, with articles on cooking, decorating, housekeeping, child-rearing, hygiene, gardening, etiquette, and home amusements. The American woman's home illuminates women's roles a century and a half ago and can be used for comparison with modern theories on the role of women in the home and in society
