1967. Piece has some tearing along the bottom edge. Can be restored with linen backing - "Stein and the composer Virgil Thomson’s “The Mother of Us All” takes as its very subject female empowerment. At the rousing conclusion of the first act of the 1947 opera . “The Mother of Us All,” the suffragist Susan B. Anthony presides over a wedding. She sings, in Gertrude Stein’s surreal words: “They are married all married and their children women as well as men will have the vote.” NYTimes
