Ethel W. Mumford (1876/8-1940)

Ethel W. Mumford (1876/78-1940) was a headstrong writer and artist who led a very interesting life. Her first husband, attorney George D. Mumford, was unsupportive of her prolific writing and art career, so much so that she divorced him in 1901. (A tremendous feat, considering how difficult - and how severely frowned upon - it was to get a divorce in those days.) Thereafter, she declared she would never remarry until she found a husband who supported her endeavors. She married "the one" in 1906, and lived happily ever after, (one would hope...)
