Margaret Wickliffe Preston was the daughter of Robert Wickliffe Preston—one whom Joseph Tanner remembered as a “real feller” and a “high roller.” Although from a well-known Bluegrass family, Wick Preston lost a great deal of money. This chapter illustrates the early beginnings of Margaret Wickliffe's family, as well as providing an account of Margaret's school days, summer at Meadow Wood, college days, and other such significant aspects of her life. Generally, it attempts to draw attention to how Margaret Wickliffe Preston contributed to the Progressive Era through leading a civically active life. Her contributions were perceived by many to be significant to the progressive reform effort.
