Description:    Williamina "Will" Parrish was a driving force in the group known as the Self and Mutual Admiration Society. The group was founded in 1904 by five St. Louis women who had an interest in art and literature. The objective of this group was "the advancement of their individual and collective talents." The group eventually referred to themselves as the Potters, and published a magazine called The Potter´s Wheel every other month for three years. Parrish made many of the decisions regarding the publishing of the magazine and did most of the binding.
