Emily Roebling and Mary Craig Sinclair - a six degrees of separation thing...


On September 14 2003, I mentioned the woman who got the Brooklyn Bridge finished as exactly the sort of heroine to get up the noses of the wimmin - the MLA, Jane Austen wacking off, Judith Butler crowd mentioned in pieces earlier in the week: acting as a helpmeet to her sick husband, studying his business to fill his shoes, etc, etc.

And, just now, hailed the wife of Bolshie author Upton Sinclair as equally unlikely to find herself voted into any feminist hall of fame any time soon.

There is a connection, I see: John A. Roebling's Sons Co. was sold to the Rockefellers' Colorado Fuel and Iron. Admittedly, in 1952. But a connection is a connection.
