Biographical Note

Marli Frances Weiner was born January 9, 1953, in Brooklyn, New York, the daughter of Walter and Phyllis (Hirsch) Weiner. She was raised primarily in Stamford, Connecticut, and received her undergraduate degree from Johns Hopkins University, a master's degree in history from Sarah Lawrence College, and a doctorate in history from the University of Rochester in 1986. Dr. Weiner taught at Cornell University, St. Lawrence College, the University of Vermont, Grinnell College and the University of New Hampshire before accepting a position in 1988 as a professor of history at the University of Maine. She died of cancer March 2, 2009, in Bangor, Maine.

Dr. Weiner's published books include Mistresses and Slaves: Plantation Women in South Carolina, 1830-1880; A Heritage of Woe: The Civil War Diary of Grace Brown Elmore; My House Has Been a Hospital: The Experience of Illness in the Antebellum South; and a book edited for publication following her death, published in 2012, Sex, Sickness, and Slavery: Illness in the Antebellum South. She also edited a volume for the University of Maine Press titled Of Place and Gender: Women in Maine History. Courses taught included 19th century history, women's history, history of the South, and African-American history.

Scope and Content Note

Many of the source files include Dr. Weiner's research notes and provide page numbers, quotations, and responses to each text. Other source files, listed by title and author, contain photocopied and clipped articles but no annotation. The manuscript of Sex, Sickness, and Slavery in Series 3 is a considerably more extensive draft than what was published after editing.  Additional material in this collection relates to professional associations, course development and teaching, and the process of tenure and promotion.
