- Kristin Celello
Mudd, Emily Borie Hartshorne (06 September 1898–02 May 1998), pioneer in the field of marriage counseling and birth control advocate, was born Emily Borie Hartshorne in Merion, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Edward Yarnall Hartshorne, a banker and philanthropist in the Philadelphia area, and Clementina Rhodes Hartshorne, a suffragist and member of the Pennsylvania League of Women Voters. Emily later cited her mother’s activism, as well as her father’s Quaker heritage, as sources of her own interest in women’s rights.
