Eliza Ridgely III

Date:
1862

Little Miss Eliza Ridgely (1858-1954) looks none too happy to be having her photograph taken in a Baltimore studio. She pays little attention to the doll lying on her lap. The eldest daughter of Charles and Margaretta Howard Ridgely was named for her grandmother and aunt. She became a social reformer and activist in Baltimore, founding the United Women of Maryland which championed assistance for the underprivileged, especially woman.
