Abstract: Correspondence of Florence Burlingame Adkinson, author and secretary for the Indiana Woman's Department of the State Board of Agriculture.
Florence Burlingame Adkinson, also known as "Mary" and "Lu," was secretary for the Women's Department of the State Board of Agriculture, in Indianapolis in 1884. She also wrote for The Sentinel, a temperance paper, and The Chicago Inter-Ocean between 1881 and 1884. In 1891 she was writing for The Woman's Journal and continued to do so for many years. She married William P. Adkinson; they had one daughter, June Adkinson. June Adkinson attended Radcliffe College, receiving her B.A. in 1909 and her M.A. in 1912.
Love, marriage and divorce of two neurotic personalities, are thoroughly covered in the Adkinson correspondence, 1867-1888. There are also many letters from Alice Stone Blackwell, a close personal friend.
