DIX: Life of Dorothea Lynde Dix 1891

  • 7000

By Francis Tiffany

This is the story of a distinguished and honorable woman, Dorothea Lynde Dix, born in April, 1802 in Maine. Despite her trialed childhood, poverty and leaving her childhood home at age twelve, the labors of her life for the insane, works she did for her country and such accomplishments match none other. In letters we see, she showed a reluctance to have her life written about.
