The Gage House: Home to the Wonderful Mother of Oz

Welcome to the Gage House, and most particularly the front parlor, where L. Frank Baum married Maud Gage, daughter of Suffragist leader, Matilda Joslyn Gage. Dr. Wagner joins us to share the life and work of this extraordinary leader and advocate for social justice.

    1. You should have been able to just select it from the Friday afternoon list and watch it without registering, but since you were able to post a question, I think maybe that means you got registered! I’m picking up messages at 11:30 and dare not call at this hour, but if you didn’t get to see it, this should be a short cut to see it on Youtube. It’s unlisted, so you need this link. It won’t show up in a search.

  1. Thank you, Sally, that was a wonderful tour and a moving way to end it in the Baum Family Parlor! I loved the story about your grandmother! Local newspapers are so great for having amazing little tidbits that don’t mean anything except to the future researcher. Frank and Matilda would be so amazed that you and I have spent so much time pouring over the Aberdeen and Fayetteville newspapers (squinting at the tiny type) to get information on what they were doing and try to imagine some type of context for their daily lives within their communities.
    I miss you and Melissa and hope to be Mrs. Gage’s home again sometime when we are all able to travel again!
