Abstract

LEGACY PROFILE Laura Jane Curtis Bullard (1831­1912) Denise M. Kohn Greensboro College Like so many other once-prominent nineteenth-century women writers, Laura Jane Curtis Bullard seems to have fallen from history and memory. Curtis Bullard (1831­1912) was a novelist, editor, and activist who succeeded Susan B. Anthony as the editor of the suffrage newspaper, the Revolution, but she rarely exists even at the level of a footnote in books and articles about American social and literary history.1 One of the exceptions is Beneath the American Renaissance by David S. Reynolds, who declares, "Of all the oversights of literary and social historians of America, few are more heinous than the almost complete neglect of Laura Curtis Bullard" (393). Fifteen years have passed since Reynolds praised Curtis Bullard, but her work and her life remain for the most part neglected.2 Yet her texts and life offer us exciting new opportunities to explore questions of popular and elite literature, the role of women in the literary marketplace, political debates about marriage, divorce, and free love, and the cultural history of the woman's rights movement in the nineteenth century.3 Laura Jane Curtis was born, rather appropriately, in Freedom, Maine, on Nov. 21, 1831.4
