Short biography
Alice Stone Blackwell was the only child of Lucy Stone and Henry Blackwell, two leading American anti-abolitionists and women's suffrage advocates. Her aunts Elizabeth and Emily Blackwell were the first licensed physicians in the USA. Alice was educated at the Harris Grammar School in Dorchester, the Chauncy School in Boston, and Boston University, from which she graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 1881. For 35 years, she was an editor of The Woman's Journal, the official publication of the American Woman Suffrage Association (AWSA), first as assistant to her parents, and then, after their deaths, as editor-in-chief. In 1890, Alice led the movement to reconcile the two competing factions of the women’s suffrage movement — the AWSA and the National Woman Suffrage Association —into the National American Woman Suffrage Association. She served as the recording secretary of this organization until 1918. She also was active in the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. She wrote her mother’s biography, Lucy Stone: Pioneer of Woman’s Rights, published in 1930.
