“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” – Miriam Beard

Mary Ritter Beard (August 5, 1876, Indianapolis, Indiana – August 14, 1958) was an American historian and archivist, who played an important role in the women’s suffrage movement and was a lifelong advocate of social justice through educational and activist roles in both the labor and woman’s rights movements. She wrote several books on women’s role in history including On Understanding Women (1931), (Ed.) America Through Women’s Eyes (1933) and Woman As Force In History: A Study in Traditions and Realities (1946). In addition, she collaborated with her husband, eminent historian Charles Austin Beard on several distinguished works, most notably The Rise of American Civilization (1927). (wikipedia)
