1858 – Caroline Julia Bartlett Crane was born in Hudson, Wisconsin. Inspired by the preaching of the Unitarian Oscar Clute, she decided to become a minister when ministry was considered an exclusively male profession. She earned a B.A. and M.A. from Carthage College, then studied theology on her own while working as a teacher and journalist. She was ordained in 1887 by a colleague of Mary Safford. She was a successful minister in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, then in Kalamazoo, Michigan. She also worked to promote public kindergartens and urban sanitation.The post August 17 first appeared on Harvard Square Library.Read more at: www.HarvardSquareLibrary.org - the digital library of Unitarian Universalism.
