While the value of prefaces has often been seriously qneetloned, It would seem 
that the first publication of an original reference book filling a new and heretofor* 
unoccupied field calls for some kind of an introduction to explain Its reason for 
being, its aim and scope. 

The time has long passed since an apology was necessary for the publishing 
of a Who's Who. The idea originated in England about sixty years ago, but 
was kept in aristocratic bounds until about fifteen years ago, when Douglas Sladen, 
an Australian writer, revised the book and extended its scope into the useful 
British volume we know to-day. 

Meanwhile, this present writer had Americanized and democratized the idea 
in making the first Who's Who volume covering United States subjects. It met 
instant acceptance and recognition, and since that the books of that kind, which 
be has created, have become the most consulted books of reference in regard to 
contemporary American people that have ever been issued from the press. 

After coming to New York and engaging as editor for two editions of a 
Who's Who book relating to the notables of the Empire State, this writer became 
convinced that there was a need for a book of that kind which would deal entirely 
with women, and, with the late L. R. Hamersly, began to gather data for such a 
book. That venture was, however, soon after abandoned and never taken up again. 
Two years ago this present enterprise was projected and the writer was asked to 
undertake its editorial direction. 

To gather fresh and original data for approximately ten thousand brief biogra- 
phies involves much hard work and a strenuous campaign of research and inquiry, 
and the volume now presented represents two years of labor. 

The reasons for a Woman's Who's Who are many. The general puiblications of 
the Who's Who class give comparatively little attention to women. The one most 
consulted has data of a few hundred women mixed in with the biographies of about 
seventeen thousand men, but even of these women, outside of those engaged in 
literature and education, the number is almost negligible. 

Women's activities have increased by leaps and bounds. There is scarcely a 
single field of professional or intellectual endeavor which baa not been entered by 
women, and in which they have not made good. There are those living who can 
remember the first opening of the means of collegiate education to women. Now the 
higher education is pursued by as many women as men. Outside of the collegiate in- 
stitutions, there is a vast educative force in the thousands of women's clubs, found in 
all the cities and most of the villages and hamlets of the country, in which women 
are studying literature, civics, sociology, current events, or are otherwise attaining 
greater light and broader culture. With education has come ambition, and thus we 
find womanhood asserting itself not only in those activities somewhat loosely 
grouped under the name of "the feminist movement," but also in competition or 
association with men in those avenues of endeavor formerly regarded as essentially 

These activities and these movements, interesting in the mass, are the composite 
results of individual expression. The personalities behind them become objects of 
increasing interest, and it is the demand for Information as to the careers of those 


who are leading in or contributing to woman's larger participation In the good 
causes and higher endeavors of our time, which this volume is Intended to supply. 
It gives biographic data and personal statistics about women nationally, sectionally 
and locally prominent in all parts of the United States and Canada, and is a new 
publication, freshly made from original data secured for it with much pains and 
great expense. Not a line of the biographical sketches in the book has been inserted 
from any financial consideration or because of any subscription past, present or 
prospective. This statement is made here, because there still seem to be a few 
people who have some mfsapprehension of the facts in this particular. 

Great care has been given to the securing of accuracy. Neither inerrancy nor 
Infallihility is claimed, and doubtless some errors may have crept in, but it is 
believed that very few will be found. As to inclusion and omission of names, there 
will no douht be criticism, the editor being quite aware that some have been 
omitted who should be included, for there are several such from whom or about 
whom no reliable data could be procured, and who have therefore been regretfully 
omitted. These cases are, however, very rare, and the publication is presented as 
one unique in its class, containing valuable reference information of which about 
ninety per cent, is not to be found in any other publication. It is, in fact, the 
only valuable and dependable compendium of information about contemporary 
American and Canadian women of comprehensive scope which has been published. 

The editor acknowledges, with deep gratitude, the letters of approval and 
encouragement which have come from ail parts of the country in regard to this 
book, and is deeply sensible, also, of the helpful suggestions received from the 
distinguished women who have acted as an Editorial Advisory Board, and from 
many others in all sections. The recognition of the need for such a volume has 
been almost unanimous, though a few (perhaps a dozen) women have written in 
dispraise of the plan of making a book entirely about women. 

Coming down to particulars, the volume contains brief personal sketches of 
9644 women, of whom 6303 are or have been married, and 3341 are maidens. Every 
State in the United States and every Province in the Dominion of Canada is repre- 
sented. All the important lines of endeavor in which women engage (and their 
name is legion) have their exponents in these pages: the arts, sciences and pro- 
fessions, religion, missionary effort, education, philanthropy, charity, reform work, 
social service, literature, journalism, business, official life, club life, feminist activi- 
ties, and all the many ways in which women are working In and influencing the 
movements for progress, for higher ideals, for better living, for cleaner politics, 
and for social, educational and religious uplift 

It is hoped to make Woman's Who's Who of Amebica a reference book of 
permanent value and the one indispensable volume of reference for those seeking 
information about the contemporary women of the United States and Canada. 

It is the present intention to give the book such periodical revision as the 
demand may justify, and to this end suggestions of names and Improvements are 
Invited. John W. Leonabd.

In preparing the data-sheet for Woman's Who's Who of America, the editor 
realized that a very large proportion of the women interrogated would he interested, 
one way or tho other, in the suffrage question, which loomed conspicuously above 
the horizon of pu/blic interest. Since then the question has reached deeper interest. 
More States have granted the franchise to women, a new National party has put 
a wotnan-sufErago plank in its platform, and women themselves have become more 
and more active, somo in the proiKiiganda for, and others in opposition to, the 
further extension of the franchise to women. 

So far as it was possible to do so, WoMAjf's Who's Who or America has in 
this volume given expression to the individual views of the women, represented in It, 
on the suffrage question. Most of those interrogated made answer to the inquiry 
in regard to their sinnd on suffrage, but many did not. Somo frankly declared, 
themselves to be undecided, many ignored the question entirely, and several wrote 
letters asking that nothing be said about their suffrage views, for personal or 
business reasons. One said: "I'm in favor of it, but don't put that in, for my 
husband forbids it." This is the only Woman-Afraid-of-Her-Husband disclosed in 
the entire editorial correspondence. 

In a few cases the record on the suffrage question was changed in the proof 
on submission, two or three striking out favorable reference and noting as their 
reason for doing so the actions of the English militants, and as many others 
changing "against" to "for" as a result of change of convictions. 

Space did not permit the printing of elaboration of views in regard to the 
suffrage which many expressed, some quite vehemently, on each side of the propo- 
sition. Some of those opposed evidently expect dire results from woman suffrage, 
and one is recorded' as opposed to woman suffrage "on Scriptural grounds." Many 
cf those who favor woman suffrage have at the same time disclaimed any sympathy 
with militancy, although the attitude of a few is expressed by the Western woman 
who records herself as favoring woman suffrage and being "militant if necessary." 
Another, a Wyoming woman, tells the editor: "I've voted every election for thirty 
years and haven't been corrupted yet" Several of those interrogated express them- 
selves as in favor of limiting the franchise for men and women alike on educational 
or property qualifications. 

It occurred to the editor that an analysis might be made of the data on the 
subject as printed in the book which might be Informing upon the question as to 
whether the women of the country really desire tho franchise, and with that object 
in view he has carefully scanned tho pages to find out how many are for and how 
many are against woman suffrage. 

In tabulating the results, nothing has been taken into consideration except the 
record as printed. Those have been recorded as for suffrage who have either said 
so in those words, or have mentioned their membership in purely suffrage organiza- 
tions. In this classification the calculation has not included women who have 
recorded themselves as members of the Progressive or Prohibition parties without 
further reference to suffrage views, for though those parties have declared for 
suffrage for women, there are a few cases in which memibers of those parties 
have declared themselves as opposed or neutral on tho suffrage question. 


Socialists have been counted on the suffragist side. Those who have declared them- 
selves as against woman suffrage, or as members of anti-suffrage organizations, or 
who propose to confine the franchise to school or municipal questions, or to tax- 
p&ying women, have been counted in the opposition to suffrage. On the other 
hand, those who believe in restricted suffrage for men and women alike have been 
counted in favor. In other words, the record, as made up, is of those for or against 
equal suffrage, eliminating sex as a discriminating qualification. 

The editor has compiled these figures from the printed record, even ignoring 
his i)ersonal knowledge, in those cases where no record has been printed, of the 
views of several of those who have been left out of the calculation. Those counted 
for woman suffrage aggregate 4787; those opposed, 773; those who have neglected 
to record themselves, including a very few who have gone on record as neutral, 
number 4084. The latter number is not made up of women entirely indifferent 
to the question. Some are, but among the others are some who would give little 
Information on any subject not professional, and some others who gave no data 
for this book, whose sketches have been written from personal memoranda which 
the editor has been privately collecting for the past four years for another purpose. 

As to the bearing of the figures disclosed by this analysis, it is not intended 
to comment here, but perhaps it is pertinent to state that not more than a hundred 
names, all told, of those used in the book, have been included solely for their 
prominence as exponents of either side of the suffrage question.
