An independent woman : the life of Lou Henry Hoover by Anne Beiser Allen( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lou Hoover served as president of the Girl Scouts during its formative years, organized the Women's Division of the National Amateur Athletic Federation to encourage public participation in sports, and raised money for a number of cultural and philanthropic organizations. As First Lady, she redecorated the White House to make it a suitable residence for a head of state, cataloging its furnishings for posterity. She founded a school for underprivileged Appalachian children and ran a private, unpublicized relief network for Americans suffering under the Great Depression. After leaving the White House, she resumed the volunteer work that remained such a treasured part of her life."--Jacket
And the wilderness shall blossom : Henry Benjamin Whipple, churchman, educator, advocate for the Indians by Anne Beiser Allen( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than a century after his death, the story of his complex life - as churchman, educator, and advocate for Native Americans in the fragile, pioneering years of the American westward movement-looms just as large." "Henry Benjamin Whipple was one of Minnesota's best-known citizens. In his forty-two years as Episcopal bishop of Minnesota, he oversaw the development of this state's Episcopal Diocese, founded four churches, and established two secondary schools (Shattuck and St. Mary's) as well as Seabury Seminary." "As a champion of the rights of Native Americans, he was a major voice in bringing the plight of Minnesota's Ojibwe and Dakota to national and international attention. His tireless advocacy of their treaty rights earned him respect on the reservations, in the pulpit, and at the nation's capital. He was, said one colleague, "90 percent St. John and 10 percent New York politician" - a charming blend of evangelist and businessman whose 'friends ran the gamut from presidents to backwoodsmen. His strong faith, simple sincerity, and powerful voice made him a popular speaker as well as a persuasive negotiator and fundraiser." "Anne Beiser Allen's carefully documented research and well-written text sheds new light on this able man and his enduring legacy, tracing his origins in upstate New York, his unexpected election as Minnesota's first Episcopal bishop, and his widespread influence in religious affairs, education, and Indian policy." --Book Jacket

The disillusionment of Father Bonduel by Anne Beiser Allen( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

One spring morning in 1855, Father Florimond J. Bonduel, Catholic missionary to the Menominee at Keshena, took an axe and chopped down the large cross he had erected in front of the mission chapel three years before. Furiously, he shouted that the Menominee were an ungrateful people who didn't deserve the services of a priest. This article tells the story of Father Bonduel, born in Belgium in 1799, and his involvement in the relocation of a Menominee tribe from Lake Poygan to Keshena in the 1850s. For Father Bonduel, the process leading to relocation was a painful initiation into the murky waters of white/Indian relations. Working closely with the Menominee people to fight their impending removal from Wisconsin, Father Bonduel quickly fell victim to complex political maneuvers of the state and national governments as he attempted to gain compensation for his work with the tribe. Despite his angry outburst at the Menominee people and his departure from Keshena, Father Bonduel is remembered today as the man whose unstinting efforts were chiefly responsible for enabling the Menominee to remain in Wisconsin

Marshall and Ilsley Bank : a Wisconsin icon by Anne Beiser Allen( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This article chronicles the rise and fall of the Marshall & Ilsley Bank from its beginnings as a small two-man office in Milwaukee, to the largest bank in Wisconsin, to its purchase in 2012 by the Bank of Montreal, and its disappearance from the landscape. In 1847, Samuel Marshall began as an exchange agent in the city of Milwaukee at a time when banks were illegal. In 1852, the state legislature recognized the economic necessity for banks and passed a law authorizing their establishment. Over the next 150 years, the conservative banking principles Marshall and his future partner, Charles F. Ilsley, espoused led the Marshall & Ilsley Bank safely through the economic panics of the nineteenth century and the Great Depression of the twentieth century
