Sara Tappan Doolittle Robinson (née Lawrence) (July 12, 1827 – November 15, 1912) was an American writer and historian. She served as the inaugural First Lady of Kansas, 1861–1863, being the second wife of Charles L. Robinson (1818–1894), the first Governor of Kansas. Robinson is most notable for her book, ''Kansas : its interior and exterior life ; including a full view of its settlement, political history, social life, climate soil, productions, scenery, etc.'' (1856) during which time, her house was plundered and burned. The book was considered "epoch making" for its time. Provided by Wikipedia
