The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity previews in Boston

Mary Baker Eddy is regarded by those familiar with her as one of the most important women in United States religious history," declared Don W. Wilson, speaking at a gathering of Boston's civic and cultural leaders. "Yet the universe of people who know about her is quite small. We now all have the opportunity to correct that." Wilson is a former Archivist of the United States and a trustee of the newly established Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity. "The library's most important contribution is to ensure that her legacy endures the rest of this century and into the 22nd century."

The gathering, held just prior to the Thanksgiving holiday, introduced the Boston community to The Mary Baker Eddy Library. The audience learned about how exhibits, programs, and research facilities of the library will provide a wealth of information and ongoing discourse about the life, times, and ideas of Mrs. Eddy.
