First edition: stated. American teacher turned sociologist, Frances R. Donovan (1880-1965) published The Woman who Waits (1920), The Saleslady (1929), and The Schoolma'am (1938); otherwise, her work is unknown. In his introduction, Robert E. Park slights his former student's work, however methodical and formal as that of any respected sociologist. "She was a keen observer, with a sense of humor, and her perceptions of women as a devalued group are particularly incisive." - Encyclopedia com
