Her New York Times Obit:

Mrs. Martin Holbrook
Champion of Child Life Dies at Age of 72 in Mobile

Mrs. Martin Holbrook, long identified in Alabama with movements for the improvement of child life and vice president of the Democratic women's organization in that State, died yesterday morning at the age of 72, relatives here have been informed. She once had been well known as a Suffragist lecturer, and had campaigned in this State.

Mrs. Holbrook, a native of Memphis, Tennessee, formerly Miss Anna Lucille MGeoy, was a graduate of University of Tennessee. Although she had taken a law course, she never practiced. In the latter part of her life she devoted her energies and knowledge of the law exclusively to ameliorating working conditions for both white and Negro children and to their adequate education. She was also prominent in charity work, and an officer in a society caring for several hundred orphans.

Survivors are her husband, Martin Holbrook of Mobile, for 50 years with the Southern and American Express Companies; two sons, Emmett L., an attorney here, and Thomas L. of Detroit, and a daughter, Miss Shelby Holbrook of Mobile.
