Marguerite's Window to Her World
Peering from her window into the 1950's landscape, Marguerite would write Pine Whisper columns for her newspaper, The Northwoods Call. The natural world and conservation issues were always on her mind. Using her manual Underwood typerwriter, Marguerite hammered out hard news columns on Michigan's environment. She was a woman making a difference. And consider that this work predated Rachael Carson's Silent Spring.
