Abby Williams Hill (1861-1943) was a landscape painter, social activist, and prolific writer with an insatiable love of travel and learning. She produced a remarkable collection of landscape paintings showcasing the grandeur of the American West, as well as a vast archive of letters and journals addressing issues of continuing social and historical interest including African-American and Native-American rights, early childhood education, and the preservation of our national parks. This article examines Hill's involvement as an advocate and activist.
