I wanted to make a quick public notice of a new project at the Juvenile Instructor. We have begun the process of mapping every initialism/pseudonym in the issues of the Woman’s Exponent to their respective authors. This process is time intensive and will require a lot of work, but we figure opening the resource (a Google Doc at this point) to the public and our readership will encourage collaboration. Ultimately, this list will prove useful to many scholars as they study the lives of the women who crafted this publication and the world they shaped.

  1. Thanks for spearheading this, Tod. I imagine the question of an author’s identity comes up regularly enough that this could end up being an incredibly important project.

  2. Mel Bashore, formerly at the Church History library, compiled a list of names, and Lisa Olsen Tait, who is at the JS Papers project, knows many of them. They were both helpful when I was going through the Exponent.

  4. Boyd,

    I failed to respond earlier, but thank you for the tips! We’ll definitely reach out to those individuals.
