After years of scandal and front-page coverage in papers across the country, in January 1904, Elbert and Alice were finally free to marry and with 9-year-old Miriam, they moved to the Roycroft. This talk will focus on Miriam’s life in the years before, her youth at the Roycroft, and what happened when she was suddenly orphaned at age 20. Based on biographies of her parents, Roycroft and family photos, newspaper articles, letters, Miriam’s unpublished papers, and family stories, Elizabeth Garber, one of Miriam’s grandchildren, explores what Miriam’s life was like, in and out of the public spotlight.
