Sallie Stockard and the Adversities of an Educated Woman of the New South - (Paperback)
About this item
Sallie Stockard (1869-1963), the first female graduate of the University of North Carolina, published three county histories between 1900 and 1904. Thereafter, she lived an obscure and difficult life that reveals much about the many challenges women of that time faced. Encouraged by New South educational mentors, she countered restrictions on women with diligence and self-promotion. Carole Troxler discloses Stockard's professional and personal hindrances, resourcefulness, failures, and triumph, following her to New England, the Southwest, and New York. Like her subject, Troxler lives in Alamance County, and her publications include its history.
