Mary Austin, daughter of an ardent WCTU member was a prolific writer and the subject of extensive research by the poet Peggy Pond Church. Austin's work reveals her own frustration about the role of women in society, and her perceived lack of affection in childhood. A resident of Santa Fe for many years, Austin chose to write about her surroundings, and is well known as a Southwestern writer.
