Editorial Reviews


". . . Kelley King has given us a rich and complicated portrait of a Southern woman who cultivated her image as a dainty, genteel Southern woman to promote Progressive causes throughout her life. . . King's volume is an impressive example of biography writing at its best. . . King's book should be read by anyone who is interested in the women's suffrage movement in the United States and the role of women in the Progressive era of the early twentieth century." - Richard Fossey, Teachers College Record
(Richard Fossey Teachers College Record 2011-04-15)

"...a complex portrait of a remarkably accomplished woman...makes important contributions to the history of education, Texas, and progressivism through its exhaustive examination of Pennybacker's activism"--Rebecca Montgomery, Southwestern Historical Quarterly

(Rebecca Montgomery Southwestern Historical Quarterly 2011-09-13)

"Relying primarily on her subject's personal papers, Kelley M. King methodically documents Pennybacker's activities."--Judith N. McArthur, The Journal of Southern History, University of Houston-Victoria

(Judith N. McArthur Journal of Southern History 2011-11-28)

“[This book is an] engaging biography. Readers will find much interest on the history of education here. Employing the fifty-two linear feet of materials in the Pennybacker archive at the University of Texas, Kelley M. King has written a thoughtful book.”—John Louis Recchiuti, History of Education Quarterly
(John Louis Recchiuti History of Education Quarterly 2012-08-31)
