Phoebe Apperson Hearst was born 3 December, 1842, on a farm in Missouri. William Randolph Hearst commissioned the reknowned printer John Henry Nash to create this lavishly produced eulogy to his mother; a companion volume celebrated his father. Mrs. Hearst was a social leader in early San Francisco and supported many charitites. She had travelled the world and been received at Buckingham Palace and entertained the King and Queen of Belgium at San Simeon, the Spanish Hacienda in southern California where she died surrounded by every exotic luxury that man could conceive of, or the heart of a woman desire.
