I suppose I should have started a YouTube thread for these.
I've an album by Molly Jackson, recorded by Alan Lomax for the Library of Congress in 1939.The back cover photo shows a feisty-looking woman behind a typewriter, smoking a corn-cob pipe. It's on Rounder Records (then called the Rounder Collective) issued 1971.
The album notes are fascinating.
Born in 1880 as Mary Magdalene Garland, her father was a miner, union organiser, and minister. "Aunt Molly's first jail sentence came at the age of ten. (This was for dressing up in a 'disguise')" Married at 14, and a mother of two children at 16, she trained as a nurse and midwife (and delivered 884 babies over the next thirty four years.
"I had a permit to carry a pistol. I had a pistol for my own protection....being a midwife I had a permit to carry a gun. I had a good .38 special that I'd used for my protection...."
A good book to track down is Elizabeth Gurley Flynn's autobiography "The Rebel Girl".
