What would Effie Munro’s daughter Lucy from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Adventure of the Yellow Face” have looked like in adulthood?  And what would have happened to her?

The hard truth is that very few options existed in the 19th century for women of color, and almost none as regarded what we would today call a “career.”  Those who worked inside the home were most often domestics or cooks in other people’s households, or else did sewing, crafts, or laundry within their own homes. But Effie Munro’s daughter had tremendous advantages, so let’s consider rather further.  She had a well-traveled white mother who practically merited the term “adventuress,” one with her own money and prospects, and she had a white father pledged to love and protect her.  The family must have faced terrible social pressures, but they were strong and affluent and committed and brave.  So what might have become of her?

Marriage.  Well to do women seldom, let us remember, sought work at all.  One of the most likely lives Lucy would have found is marriage to a prosperous man of color—but remember, Effie married a black gentleman, and her new husband saw no issue with interracial marriage.  Therefore, provided the groom was suitably courageous, kind, and generally awesome, I have no problem believing Effie’s daughter could have married whomever she damn well pleased!

—Education.  Lucy came from two highly intelligent and resourceful parents, and ones with no fear of flouting social convention.  If Effie’s daughter developed an interest in the sciences or the humanities, she would most likely have used the knowledge for teaching, possibly even in a school dedicated to educating people of color.

—Small Business Ownership.  It was extremely uncommon for women to own their own businesses, but it was just barely possible.  Lucy had no need of her own income; however, if she had a love of hospitality, hats, printing, what have you, she could have owned a restaurant, millinery, or small press, for example.

The Arts.  Lucy must have experienced myriad disappointments and snobberies even growing up with such a badass parent and step-parent.  She would have a lot to express, and since money was no object, I personally like to think that she could have chosen to tell her story through music, painting, or some other medium.  This is my headcanon.

—Social Justice.  Times, they were hard in the 19th century, especially for people of color; it would come as no surprise to me if Lucy became a revolutionary, a crusader for civil rights during the early days of the suffragette movement—in fact, if she wasn’t a suffragette, I’ll eat my hat.

Whatever became of Lucy Munro, I hope she had a full and happy life.  Not only were her parents behind her, but so were Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself—a pretty formidable cheer team if I ever saw one.

Daily history dose. :)

I’m  so tired of this expectation that my life should revolve around everyone else’s needs, wants, and schedules that I’m at a point where it’s legitimately a struggle to not lose my shit at people.
