JULIA WARD HOWE
Howe handwrote, signed and dated this 1¢ postcard in North Portsmouth, Rhode Island to landscape architect Henry Vincent Hubbard in 1901. In it, she gives him her travel itinerary for an upcoming train trip and reminds him: "don't forget the harmonica".
Post card signed "J. W. Howe." 1 page, 5½x3¼ postcard. North Portsmouth, Rhode Island, Aug. 15, 1901. Addressed on verso to Mr. Henry V. Hubbard, Brookline, Massachusetts in unknown hand. 1¢ Jefferson postcard postmarked Newport, Rhode Island, Aug. 15, 1901 and Boston, Massachusetts, Aug. 15, 1901. Autograph message in full: "Come this very next Saturday- leave Terminal Station (Boston) by 2.28 train. Stop at Middle-town station- 4.52 - will wait at sta. for you, but don't forget the harmonica. Your's always,". "Mr Henry V. Hubbard" is possibly HENRY V. HUBBARD (1875-1947), a landscape architect with Olmsted Brothers Firm in Brookline, Massachusetts. Hubbard doesn't appear to have been a force in the suffrage or women's rights movements. However, he was influential in his own field, publishing a book on landscape design, An Introduction to the Study of Landscape Design, that became the standard textbook for landscape architecture for many years. HOWE (1819-1910, born in New York City), a social reformer and poet, is best known for writing the poem The Battle Hymn of the Republic, which she was inspired to write after visiting army camps in Washington, D.C. during the Civil War. Howe's poem, first published in the February 1862 issue of The Atlantic Monthly, was later set to music to the tune of the popular antislavery song John Brown's Body and became the unofficial song of the Union Army. Howe later turned her fervor against slavery into a crusade for women's rights. She was a co-founder (1868) and first President of the New England Woman's Suffrage Association, co-led (with Lucy Stone) the American Woman Suffrage Association (1869) and founded the Women's International Peace Association (1871). In 1870, Howe assisted Stone and her husband, Henry Blackwell, to establish the Woman's Journal, and served as an editor and writer for the publication for 20 years. Howe, who also wrote poems for other women's journals and founded the Boston Authors Club, was the first woman elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters (1908).
