Sarah H. Crosse (1845-1914) was born in Nashua, New Hampshire, and died in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She was a student of Mary Baker Eddy's, taking Primary (1883) and Normal (1885) class instruction. She was also an active member of the Christian Scientist Association and Church of Christ (Scientist), joining both in September 1882. Crosse was appointed sub-editor of The Christian Science Journal in March 1883 in preparation for its first issue. She also served later as the Journal's publisher and manager from July 1885 until August 1886. In the spring of 1888, Crosse and a group of students caused a split within the Association over its response to the Abby Corner court case. In April 1889, she was dismissed from the Church and, in May, withdrew from the Christian Scientist Association. In January 1889, prior to Crosse's dismissal from the Church and Association, the Boston Christian Science Society published the Boston Christian Scientist, a periodical that presented itself as the official organ of Christian Science. Crosse, along with other dissident students of Eddy's, were members of the Society and it's believed Crosse was editor of this periodical. The Boston Christian Scientist ceased publication in 1890, but records suggest that Crosse continued to write for other newspapers and magazines.
