Example text

She returned to Massachusetts, where she had family and roots, most probably to Amherst; her brother Edward was professor of hygiene and physical education at Amherst College. There is some indication that she served as secretary to President Seelye at the college around this time. 50 As she reported to her classmates, in 1884 Emily Terry was back in Minnesota. The answer to why she returned to Minneapolis is found in the Minneapolis City Directory for the year 1884-85. There she is listed as the superintendent of an organization called the Woman's Industrial Exchange.

Foshay discusses in detail the impact of these new scientific ideas on the character of American botanical illustration. Most of the sixty-one species of Minnesota plants Terry illustrated are wildflowers and sedges and grasses (two are shrubs, three are trees, and four are cultivated species). The composites, sedges, and grasses are well represented, as are the Orchidaceae; twenty additional plant families are represented by one or more species. , and another of the three early paintings in the collection (1854) is the orchid Pogonia vertidllata, Nutt.

The exchange, whose full title was The Woman's Industrial Exchange of Minneapolis, was founded to provide self-help opportunities for needy women by making available a market outlet for their crafts and food products. As far as can be determined, the exchange was a new effort in 1884. Terry was apparently its first superintendent; she could have been one of its founders. 51 Two paintings in the Terry collection, signed "E. H. Terry" and dated '"83," encourage more biographical speculation. One painting was done in Orange, New Jersey, the other in Painesville, Ohio.
