BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH

Bertha Rachael Palmer was born in 1880 in Worthington, Minnesota. Soon after her birth, her father moved the family to the Devils Lake area of Dakota Territory. Palmer and her brothers and sisters grew up beside the Lake in a house her father built. Years later, Miss Palmer would speak and write very nostalgically about her early years there, and would make return trips to Devils Lake as often as time would allow. She graduated from Devil's Lake High School in 1898 and went on to college at the Mayville Teacher's College, where she took her teaching degree in 1903. Palmer's high school and college years were spent in the pursuit of the arts: printing, acting, and singing. By the mid 1920s, with 20 years of teaching experience behind her, she sought public office in the same profession.

Prior to her election as the State Superintendent of Public Instruction in 1926, Palmer held the deputy post in the same agency under Minnie Nielson. She continued to serve as State Superintendent until 1933, when the Women's Christian Temperance Union called upon her skills as a public figure and speaker to combat alcohol abuse. Bertha Palmer stayed with the WCTU until her death in 1959. During her tenure she travelled extensively on behalf of the Temperance Union, giving "scientific" alcohol education in virtually every state in the union and many foreign countries. According to newspaper accounts, Miss Palmer's approach was unemotional yet with the firmness of convictions long held. Charming and disarming in bearing and manner, Miss Palmer was successful in presenting the Union's point of view while maintaining an air of cordiality. Her crusade must have at times appeared a hopeless venture, with repeal of the 19th Amendment and the obvious popularity of alcoholic beverages always before her. Nevertheless, Palmer and other WCTU leaders continued to press for temperance and in some cases, abolition of alcohol as a drink. The sheer amount of miles travelled on behalf of this cause is testimony in and of itself of the tenacity and conviction of Palmer and her leaders.

No doubt, the freedom to travel on behalf of the WCTU was thoroughly enjoyed by Palmer, as head of Scientific Instruction for the Union. Bertha Palmer's interest in nearly all aspects of the arts increased during her many treks across the United States and the world. In the same fashion her continued interest in North Dakota inspired her to write a quasi-travel guide to the state entitled, Beauty Spots of North Dakota.

Bertha Palmer remained active in an array of organizations right up to the time of her death. A staunch pro-American, Palmer’s involvement in groups like the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) in the 1940s and 1950s gave vent to her zealous feelings of patriotism. Palmer’s interest in genealogy is apparent in the collection of family trees which trace her roots back to the Mayflower and to the time of the Magna Carta. As a result, she belonged to both a Mayflower Society and a Magna Carta group.

Berth R. Palmer died December 15, 1959 at her home in Wheaton, Illinois at the age of 79. She is one of North Dakota's more famous women, as well as a leading advocate of social reform with regard to temperance and the role of women in American life.

SCOPE AND CONTENT

The Bertha R. Palmer Papers date from 1808 to 1960. The collection is broken down into twelve series: The Aaron Ludlow Papers, 1808-1845; Family (Ludlow and Palmer) History Files, 1928-1959; Personal Interest Files (Subject), 1920-1940; Education Files, 1920-1948; WCTU Files, 1920s-1940s; Writing Files, 1920s-1940s; Yale Files, 1944-1948; Secret and Fraternal Organizations Files, 1920-1940; Personal Files, 1920-1946; Miscellaneous Files, unfinished letters, etc., 1920-1950; Scrapbooks, five (5) in all, 1920-1959; and a Photo Album, transferred to Photo Archives.

Series I, the Aaron Ludlow Papers, contain letters, diaries, financial records, journals, and line-by-line accounts of sermons in small bound volumes. The maternal grandfather of Miss Palmer, Aaron Ludlow’s papers take on a distinctly evangelical Christian hue from the beginning. Apparently converted to this type of Christianity during the Second Great Awakening, the vast majority of this small series deal with Ludlow's Christian faith and how he perceived God to be working in his life. The letters are by and large to other family members and are again, highly religious in nature. In like manner, Ludlow's diaries are mostly spiritual in make up; one group of diaries, dating between 1825 and approximately 1830, give a personalized account of young Ludlow’s conversion and subsequent changes at home and work. The non-religious materials are a variety of different items, among them are: Whig and Democratic local election "posters," promises to abstain from alcohol, Ludlow's will, a Quit-claim deed between John and Gliza Ludlow, and school roll records. The dates for these items range between 1803 and 1873.

The Family History Files make up Series II of the Bertha Palmer Papers. This series covers the years between 1920 and 1950 and explore the genealogical background of both the Palmer and Ludlow families. Also included are files dealing with DAR genealogical information, Mayflower Society material, and Magna Charta Dames material, all of which includes correspondence to and from Miss Palmer between the years 1930 and 1955. There are a variety of other files dealing with family history including Pioneer Mother material from the North Dakota Federation of Women's Clubs, an autobiography of Bertha Palmer, and assorted information on Palmer's antecedents.

The Personal Interest Files make up Series III of this collection, and is comprised of various and sundry material collected by Bertha Palmer. This includes topical essays and articles on North Dakota History, U.S. and World history, the arts, the Peace Garden, and a number of copied prints of Indian leaders. Each area or topic includes letters and personal observations (by Palmer) of each, as well as some newspaper and journal accounts of the topic in question covering the time period 1920-1940.

Series IV, the Education Files, covers the period 1920-1932 and includes National Education Association files, PTA reports, State Council of Church Education, and an essay, “Character Building”. The files include correspondence, reports, and updates for the professional educator.

Series V covering the period 1920-1949, consists primarily of correspondence with the national WCTU, anti alcohol pamphlets and “educational” material.

Series VI is a group of essays and poems on a variety of topics written by Palmer between 1918 and 1935. Subjects include John Calvin, Presbyterian missions in North Dakota, and early portions of Beauty Spots of North Dakota.

During the mid-1940s Palmer furthered her “scientific education” on alcohol abuse at Yale University. Series VII includes correspondence to and from Palmer from 1943-1948 while at Yale.

Series VIII deals with the various secret and fraternal organizations Palmer was involved with during her tenure with WCTU. The organizations include Delta Kappa, the League of American Pen Women, and PEO (perhaps meaning Protect Each Other). Files include correspondence and portions of speeches Palmer delivered between 1930-1948.

Series IX is personal correspondence to and from Palmer regarding politics, temperance, education, family and business affairs between 1935-1945. The majority of the correspondence deals with WCTU meetings, conventions, and travel. The letters provide a sense of the organization and how it perceived its mission to society.

Series X includes files on the Mayville College Class of 1903, dedication of the Walhalla Monument, Bible study and Christian martyrs, radio broadcasts concerning Palmer, and personal accomplishments. The files dated 1920-1949 contain some correspondence, short essays, printed material, and clippings from magazines.

Series XI is five scrapbooks of newspaper and magazine clippings from 1933-1959 covering WCTU, her years as Sate Superintendent of Public Instruction, graduation and wedding announcements, travel brochures, postcards, and obituaries.

Series XII is a photograph album containing images of Palmer’s family, friends, and associates from the 1880s to the late 1950s.
