Inspirational Quote

A person who has a cat by the tail knows a whole lot more about cats than someone who has just read about them.
Mark Twain

Anne Nixon

It is with great admiration and sorrow that we announce the passing of Anne Knoll Nixon whom we mourn as the author of five of the six narratives for our monographs about prominent social leaders and activists of the past century.  Anne brought Jane Addams, Maud and Ballington Booth, William Edwin Hall, Ruth Standish Baldwin and George Edmund Haynes, and Eunice Kennedy Shriver to life years after their deaths, revealing how each gave rise to a social movement that continues today.

While seemingly writing a story of the life and work of each of these Founders, Anne amazingly incorporated the moment of discovery, when awareness led to commitment; actions taken within the context of the times; the growth of the movement into a national organization and its, and their, legacy over time –all within 30 pages or less. The stories are designed to inspire one to action, and they do. Anne was and remains an inspiration to us.¬† We will continue to celebrate her belief in the potential which resides within each of us.
