Martha and Rose

Martha Jefferson and Rose Wilder Lane

Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson’s wife, was born on October 30, 1748. On the same date in 1968, American journalist, novelist and author Rose Wilder Lane died. Lane is perhaps best known, today, for her editorial work — some say “ghost writing” — of her mother’s Little House on the Prairie books for children. Her non-fiction The Discovery of Freedom was published in 1943, the same year as a similarly themed book, The God of the Machine, was published by her friend Isabel Paterson.
