About: Louise Dixon Boyle (1875–1953), a member of the Bahá’í community of Washington, D.C., for fifty-six years, was an intelligent and active woman whose record of service to the promotion of the Bahá’í teachings and the betterment of society is rich and varied. Conscious of the forces of social change, the impact of progressive scientific ideas, and the issues confronting the Western world in the early years of the twentieth century, Louise Boyle sought to find ways to bring to the attention of leaders of thought the teachings of the Bahá’í religion that related to their fields of interest, and to encourage her co-religionists to familiarize themselves with current thought and to consider the means by which it might be used to introduce Bahá’í perspectives on the issues of the day.
