Heart-shaped valentine, labeled "To Miss Sanford"

Valentine given to Maria Sanford, 1913

Valentine given to Maria Sanford by University of Minnesota Students.
Minnesota Historical Society Manuscript Collection, Maria L. Sanford Papers, 1851–1920

"To Miss Sanford
Vivid, buoyant,
Tireless, fluent;
Full of vim,
An occasional whim;
Never a shirk
Not afraid of work,
For mind, or heart, or hand;
A love of beauty,
A sense of duty,
As quick to obey as command;
A brain right clear,
A heart full of cheer,
Eloquent lips touched by altar’s coal;
Still she is, humanly,
Just plain womanly,
With face--index of beautiful soul.
Just as good as she is great,
The best-loved woman of the North Star State.
Feb. 14, 1913"
