 SMITH, EFFIE, Rosemary and Pansies
SMITH, EFFIE
Rosemary and Pansies
1909. SMITH, Effie. ROSEMARY AND PANSIES. Boston: Richard G. Badger/The Gorham Press, 1909. First edition. 52 pp. Small 8vo. ribbed green cloth stamped in gilt and blind. Corners and spine somewhat shelfworn, with gilt cover lettering and floral ornaments rubbed. Ink ownership dated 1916 to front flyleaf. A few of the poems' titles have light pencil marks next to them. In 1900, educational opportunities were rare for both blacks and whites in most of eastern Kentucky. Black students in Pike County had to leave the mountains to advance beyond the eighth grade. In this environment Effie Waller, a young black woman, wrote ballads and verse to Bryant and Longfellow. Both of her parents were former slaves who provided all of their children a degree of education far beyond the norm. Waller's mother supplied the love and care that insulated the children from the harsh realities of racism. Effie Waller Smith married a deputy sheriff who was murdered in the line of duty, and when she moved out of Kentucky she left little record of her existence. What remains are three volumes of verse, three short stories, and a few poems she wrote for literary magazines. They testify to her desires and ambitions as a creative writer, and yet they remain largely unacknowledged. In 1906, Effie Waller Smith died in total obscurity. --David Deskins, Clerk of the Court, Pike County. Rare. Heredity By Effie Smith, in Rosemary and Pansies, 1909 Our dead forefathers, mighty though they be, For all their power still leave our spirits free; Though on our paths their shadows far are thrown, The life that each man liveth is his own. .

 TARBELL, IDA M., Signed Letter to Secretary of the Treasury Mcadoo, 1916
TARBELL, IDA M.
Signed Letter to Secretary of the Treasury Mcadoo, 1916
1916. TARBELL, Ida M. SIGNED LETTER TO SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY MCADOO, 1916, REFUSING A POSITION ON THE TARIFF COMMISSION. One page, one side, 8 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches, blue personal stationery with Tarbell's address. Typed. Letter creased horizontally and vertically, two corners slightly creased. Overall very good condition. In this letter, dated December 30, 1916, Tarbell graciously declines the Secretary's proposal (via Wilson) that she serve on the Tariff Commission: "..I hope that you know that I do consider it a privilege and an honor .. I am not physically fit to undertake the work. I have held very confining positions for years, and recently have had to vary my work .. It only means, however, that I have had to seek a change of work, not that I am retired. As a matter of fact I was never working harder." Tarbell proposes that she might aid the Commission by "interpreting it to the public .. through my professional channels." She makes reference to her tariff work of a few years past, which left her "in a rather anarchist mood on the subject .. Still, if I do attempt to write or talk again on the subject, I shall, for the sake of the cause, sink my anarchism and be wise as a serpent." Tarbell's THE TARIFF IN OUR TIMES was published in 1911, and made investigation of how the tariff system benefited businesses rather than the public. .
