This paper offers a reading of the scholarly life of Caroline Spurgeon. It draws on J.J. Royster and G.E. Kirsch's work on social circulation («Feminist Rhetorical Practices: New Horizons for Rhetoric, Composition, and Literary Studies») to theorize the contours and boundaries of Caroline's professional networks and friendships. Examination of these networks illuminate key historical and biographical information about Caroline as a scholar and activist and her educational, political, and social connection with other like-minded women.
