Sallie Joy was the first woman journalist in Boston when she became a special reporter for the Boston Post in 1870 to cover Woman Suffrage Conventions and related activities. In 1874, Sallie Joy married the singer, Henry Keith White, Jr., but domestic concerns interrupted her career only briefly. Until shortly before her death, she advised on fashion and household problems, making famous the pseudonym Penelope Penfeather, and continued to report woman's rights activities and local news, particularly for the Boston Herald.
These addenda consist of clippings, mostly by Sallie Joy White, 1881-1908, 1935, n.d., and the heading design for Sallie Joy White's column. The clippings (#1-17) were microfilmed for preservation purposes and then discarded. They are ONLY AVAILABLE ON MICROFILM (M-146). One folder (#18f+) containing non-clippings was interfiled with A-126.
