An obituary in the Boston Transcript, written by Guerrier, commended her old friend as "a master craftsman known ... " 34 Born in Nova Scotia in 1872, Edith Brown had come to Boston to attend the Museum School, from which she graduated in 1895, then stayed on to work as a teacher of drawing and design. She also developed some small reputation as an illustrator, her first published drawings appearing in a periodical called The Churchman in 1899, and later in children's books.

Chandler held that "the personal habits of the tenants are largely responsible for such conditions.... " 5 Despite the uncharitable, but unfortunately rather representative judgments cited above, social reformers, philanthropists, and young people looking for a meaningful calling flocked to the North End: Pauline Agassiz Shaw, Helen Osborne Storrow, women volunteers from the Associated Charities, and the Edith Guerriers of the working world came to provide social services, various kinds of vocational instructionand often the money to pay for themand role models.

Unlike Denison House, whose residents tried to meet the everyday needs of immigrant families and working women, the library clubhouse was open only to young, unmarried Jewish and Italian women who were in school or beginning to work.
