Reading through an old law book, I realized the practice of taking a man’s name was a form which denoted a transferal of ownership from father to husband. I was not going there. Around 1974 I changed my name to Pillsbury-Foster, and this has been my name ever since.
Pillsbury is for my father and grandfather THEY HATED YOU a line of people whom I had always admired: Radical Abolitionists, suffragists, and workers for justice. Foster memorializes the family of Dr. Harriet Foster Pillsbury, my great-grandmother, a woman who attended the Women’s Infirmary of New York, finishing her education in 1880. She was also a suffragist and went on to run women’s clinics, setting these up in California when the family relocated there in 1883.
I discovered Harriet was the descendant of at least nine of the survivors of the Salem Witch Craft Trials. This lead onto the eventual merging of what had been two distinct lines of interest for me: politics and family history. There is still a lot we do not know about why people become who they are. But there is probably no better indicator of what you are going to do than family history and the culture and customs passed on through our earliest experiences
