Paulina Kellogg Wright Davis, born on August 7, 1813, was the editor and publisher of The Una: A Paper Devoted to the Elevation of Woman.   Women’s history researchers can consult copies of the paper preserved in the Rare Book and Special Collections Division  of the Library of Congress.   The Una, founded in 1853 to cover “the rights, sphere, duty, and destiny of woman, fully and fearlessly,”preceded the better known Revolution by 13 years.
