What can we learn about Sophy Bliss Carman and her more famous family by reading her diary and correspondence? Was she a stereotypical “Victorian lady” who believed that women should be pure, pious and submissive? Or was she more intellectually engaged, independent and assertive in managing her family and household that such a stereotypical characterization would imply?
