When I want anything in Boston remedied, said Edward Everett Hale, I go down to the New England Woman's Club! When the General Federation of Women's Clubs was formed in 1892, our mother served on the board of directors for four years, and was then made an honorary vice-president. She was also president of the Massachusetts State Federation from 1893 to 1898, and thereafter honorary president Dr. Holmes once said to her, Mrs. Howe, I consider you eminently clubable ; and he added that he himself was not.
