Livermore, Mary A.

Liv′ermore, Mary A., daughter of Timothy Rice and wife of D. P. Livermore, a Universalist minister, was born at Boston, Mass., Dec. 19, 1821. Mrs. Livermore was known as one of the leading and ablest advocates of woman suffrage. She also lectured on temperance and other reforms. On the platform she proved herself the peer of the most distinguished orators, and in grace, refinement and all the higher qualities of womanhood she had few superiors. Her Story of the War is well-known, as are The Story of My Life, What Shall we do with our Daughters? and Pen-Pictures. She died in 1905.
