Madeline began to build upon many of the ideas that she had already developed and publicized in the Herald. In most instances she worked with one of the newly formed organizations: the Civic League, the Associated Charities, or the Woman's Club of Kentucky. The reforms that Madeline promoted through these groups ranged from the founding of parks, playgrounds, and kindergartens to attempts to persuade officials to include manual training in schools and to secure the passage of compulsory education, a juvenile court, and child labor laws. The passing of Colonel Breckinridge marked the end of an era for Madeline and Desha and in the coming years, they would use the pages of the Herald even more forcefully for progressive reforms.
