Stow's husband died 8 years into their marriage, and she was denied her inheritance of $200,000. She was already active in sufferage movements in California at the time, and at that point turned her attention to reforming probate law. Her book quickly sold 400 copies, earning her 1000 dollars, which she dedicated to opening a women's college. She later became the first woman to run for Vice-President. Item #56301
