A native of Chicago, Florence Blackstone (1885-1950) was an active proponent of the Suffragist movement and the wife of Paul J. Blackstone, who signed the door just below her. She served as the treasurer of the Women's Trade Union League, and was an employee of the brokerage firm John L. Morgenthau before she retired in 1930. An avid collector of early American glass and books, Mrs. Blackstone likely frequented Frank Shay's bookshop while living in New York.
