She's said to be the first white woman to climb the Mt. Lassen peak, and following the climb, expedition leader Major Pierson B. Reading named the lake for her. She also taught art in the Oakland schools; her husband was educator <a href=\"A.W.%20Brodt\">Aurelius W.

After moving to Oakland, in 1867, she became the first art instructor of noted artist <a href=\"Arthur%20F.%20Mathews\">Arthur F. Mathews</a>. <sup>1</sup> Mathews was the brother of architect <a href=\"Walter%20J.%20Mathews\">Walter J. Mathews</a>.</p>\n<p>\n\tWhile she produced some landscapes, Tanner Brodt was best known for painting portraits. Several of her paintings and drawings are owned by the UC Berkeley Bancroft Library. The <a href=\"Oakland%20Museum%20of%20California\">Oakland Museum of California</a> also has some her art supplies, a watercolor tray and a box of pastels. <sup>3</sup></p>\n<p>\n\tOne of Tanner Brodt's better-known portraits was of abolitionist <a href=\"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Brown_(abolitionist)\">John Brown</a>, which was painted in 1864 (apparently based on a well-known daguerreotype), under the supervision of Mrs. Brown. <sup>5</sup> The painting was given to Storer College at Harper's Ferry, and may be hanging in the Harper's Ferry National Historical Park. <sup>5</sup> Another source says it's in the collection of the Smithsonian. <sup>6</sup> (See also <a href=\"https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-1-4039-7846-2_4\">John Brown, Bearded Patriarch</a> which says there was both an oil painting and a painting on a ceramic or metal plate.)</p>\n<p>\n\tKnown portraits include:</p>\n<ul>\n\t<li>\n\t\tself portrait</li>\n\t<li>\n\t\tAurelius W.

After attending the National Academy of Design in New York City, she married A.W. Brodt in 1861, and they moved west to Red Bluff, California, in 1863. In August 1864, they were camping near Mt. Lassen when Major Reading's party spotted the smoke of their campfire. He invited them to join their climbing expedition, and on August 28, 1864, she became the first white woman to summit Mt. Lassen. <sup>1,2</sup></p>\n<p>\n\tHelen and A.W. had four children: daughter <strong>Ethel Brodt</strong> (1865 \u2013 1947), son <strong>Paul W. Brodt</strong> (1868 \u2013 1946), daughter <strong>Wyntie Bogardus Brodt</strong> (1875 \u2013 1963), and son <strong>Shirley M. Brodt</strong> (1876 \u2013 1899). Ethel and Paul were born in Tehama County; Wyntie and Shirley were born in Oakland.</p>\n<h3>\n\tDeath and Burial</h3>\n<p>\n\tTanner Brodt died in Berkeley in 1909. After a funeral at the First Christian Church of Berkeley, her remains were interred at \"The Hights\". <sup>4</sup></p>\n<p>\n\tThe Brodt's son Shirley was also interred there following his death in 1899.</p>\n<h3>\n\tShirley's Death</h3>\n<p>\n\tThe Brodt's youngest son, Shirley, died in 1899 under somewhat mysterious circumstances. He was 23 years old, and working for his father at the Ralston Health Food Company.</p>\n<p>\n\tOn November 19, 1899, Shirley fell from the roof of the family house, breaking his neck or back. A neighbor, W.H. Weilbye was passing by at the time and saw Shirley's body in midair. Death was not instantaneous and a doctor was summoned, but Shirley died within an hour.</p>\n<p>\n\tThe <em>San Francisco Chronicle</em> had the headline \"Plunged Madly To His Death\" with the subhead \"Circumstances indicate that it was a deliberate suicide\", noting <em>\"Members of the family refuse to express an opinion as to whether the fall was due to accident or intent but some circumstances point strongly to suicide.\"</em> The article described Shirley as <em>\"morose and rather eccentric.\"</em> <sup>8</sup></p>\n<p>\n\tThe <em>Sacramento Record-Union</em> went with \"Broke His Neck\" and \"An Oakland Man Throws Himself From a Roof.\" The article said Shirley was <em>\"Stricken with grief over the waning of his mental faculties.\"</em> <sup>9</sup></p>\n<p>\n\tThe <em>Oakland Tribune</em> had \"Shirley Brodt Takes His Life\" and \"Dived From a Third Story Window and Broke His Neck.\" His father noted that he had been behaving strangely for a month. The article posits that \"Young Brodt was evidently out his mind,\" and said W.H. Weilbye described <em>\"the awful jump as closely resembling a high dive made by a good swimmer.\"</em> <sup>10</sup></p>\n<p>\n\tDespite these colorful descriptions and headlines suggesting it was suicide, the next day the coroner ruled the fall was accidental. <sup>11</sup></p>\n<p>\n\tA funeral was held at the family home, and Shirley's remains were interred at \"The Hights\", <a href=\"Joaquin%20Miller\">Joaquin Miller's</a> estate where <a href=\"Joaquin%20Miller%20Park\">Joaquin Miller Park</a> is now. Miller was good friends with the Brodt family, and suggested the location. <sup>12</sup></p>\n<h2>\n\tLinks and References</h2>\n<ol>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"https://www.nps.gov/people/tanner-brodt.htm\">Helen Tanner Brodt</a> nps.gov</li>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"https://books.google.com/books?id=CXjPAAAAMAAJ&amp;lpg=PA488&amp;dq=a%20woman%20pioneer%20on%20lassen%20peak%20overland%20monthly&amp;pg=PA488#v=onepage&amp;q&amp;f=false\">A Woman Pioneer on Lassen's Peak</a> <em>Overland Monthly and Out West Magazine</em> November 1924</li>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"http://collections.museumca.org/?q=collection-item/a65173381\">watercolors A65.173.38.1</a>, <a href=\"http://collections.museumca.org/?q=collection-item/a65173382\">pastels A65.173.38.2</a> Gift of Virginia Perry Wilson, Oakland Museum of California</li>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"https://www.newspapers.com/clip/81984555/helen-tanner-brodt-funeral-interment/\">Aged Artist Buried Among Many Flowers</a> <em>Oakland Tribune</em> March 12, 1908</li>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"https://www.newspapers.com/clip/81986844/helen-tanner-brodt/\">Not in Napa Library</a> <em>Sacramento Bee</em> January 28, 1933</li>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"http://www.saratogahistory.com/History/sarah_brown.htm\">Sarah Brown, Artist and Abolitionist</a> Saratoga Historical Foundation</li>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"https://napavalleyregister.com/lifestyles/real-napa/columnists/rebecca-yerger/rebecca-yerger-memory-lane-the-women-of-wilson-s-inn/article_4d568a9d-9fcf-5486-b227-73b5f2d462a9.html\">Rebecca Yerger, Memory Lane: The Women of Wilson\u2019s Inn</a> <em>Napa Valley Register</em> March 24, 2019</li>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"https://www.newspapers.com/clip/81989745/shirley-brodt-suicide/\">Plunged Madly To His Death</a> <em>San Francisco Chronicle</em> November 20, 1899</li>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"https://www.newspapers.com/clip/82056681/shirley-brodt-throws-himself-from-a/\">Broke His Neck</a> <em>Sacramento Record-Union</em> November 20, 1899</li>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"https://www.newspapers.com/clip/82068795/shirley-brodt-takes-his-life/\">Shirley Brodt Takes His Life</a> <em>Oakland Tribune</em> November 20, 1899</li>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"https://www.newspapers.com/clip/81988831/shirley-brodts-death-from-fall/\">Shirley Brodt's Death Accidental</a> <em>Oakland Tribune</em> November 21, 1899</li>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"https://www.newspapers.com/clip/81988993/shirley-brodt-buried-on-the-heights/\">Buried On The Heights</a> <em>San Francisco Call</em> November 24, 1899</li>\n</ol>\n", "region": "https://ja.localwiki.org/api/v4/regions/340/", "history_comment": null, "history_date": "2021-07-23T23:10:15.376", "history_type": 1, "history_user": "https://ja.localwiki.org/api/v4/users/3242/", "history_user_ip": "" }
