Biography: 

This icon represents the "next generation, with its more modern ideas" (120) who lead Jefferson in the early 20th century, in particular the "deputation" of Alderman who pay a call on Emily Grierson to tell her that there is no record that her taxes had ever been remitted. Their unnamed spokesman is polite but firm. Miss Emily, however, refuses to comply and orders Tobe to "Show these gentlemen out" of her house (121).
