Marjorie G. Jones, Author

Spanning two centuries, "The Life and Times of Mary Vaux Walcott" tells the story of a remarkable Philadelphia Quaker (1860-1940), whose life as an avid explorer, glaciologist, early photographer, Indian commissioner and renowned illustrator of North American wildflowers illuminates the worldview of intrepid women of her era. A late and happy marriage to the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution catapulted Mary Vaux Walcott to the highest levels of Washington politics and society, where she witnessed and participated in tumultuous events of the 1920s and 1930s and became a close friend and confidante of First Lady Lou Henry Hoover.
