Abstract:

"To some, she was Guppy. To others, she was the Lady Bountiful or Madame X. To most, she was simply Mrs. Emery. Little remembered today, she was well-loved during her lifetime in Cincinnati, the city of her maturity. She was less recognized nationally in spite of her many benefactions across the United States and abroad. Devoted to her family as wife and mother, and to good works after the deaths of her husband and children, her life epitomized the philanthropist dedicated to humanity's welfare. Mary Muhlenberg Hopkins, as the wife of Thomas J. Emery and as his widow and heiress of a fortune, shied from public acclaim.

Even after the death of her husband, when her many philanthropies were initiated, she deferred to his memory and most often attached his name, not hers, to the various projects or institutions she supported."--Jacket.
