Eliza Crawford Anderson Godefroy: Shattering the Glass Ceiling in the Intellectual World of Baltimore, 1800-1819

A friend of Elizabeth Patterson, abandoned wife of a failed Baltimore merchant, a single mother who divorced for love to marry a French artist/architect, and an accomplished editor/writer in her own right, Eliza Godefroy’s life was both extraordinary and tragic. Her failed journal, the first of its kind in America edited by a woman, remains a monument to her skills as a writer and observer of the intellectual life of the emerging urban presence of Baltimore, as much as her second husband's Battle Monument remains as the centerpiece of the city’s official seal. This lecture will explore the career of the brilliant, Eliza Godefroy during the first two decades of the nineteenth century.
