Title

The Uncrowned Queen

Description

The Uncrowned Queen was advertised to Woman’s Clubs, Parent-Teacher Associations, churches, “Business and Professional Women’s clubs” and other groups in advance of the Willard Centenary Celebrations in 1939. The WCTU instructed local organizations to find “a talented young woman in your community” who could perform the hour-long monologue. Written by Jane Good, the piece was published by the Creative Dramatics Department of the Northwestern School of Speech. Good hoped that her “dramatic monolog… will be presented by a talented young woman in many localities before clubs and groups of various kinds. Thus the general public may come to know better, in this, her centenary year, that great humanitarian, Frances E. Willard.”
