ALICE B. HANFORD was born in New Jersey around 1856. She married businessman H.B. Hanford around 1887 and move to Camden with her husband shortly thereafter. The Hanfords lived at 517 Penn Street, and at some point in the 1890s bought the mansion of prominent Camden attorney Howard M. Cooper at 633 Cooper Street, where they lived until Mr. Hanford passed away in the 1920s. Mrs. Hanford remained there until the early 1920s when she sold the property to the Community Hotel Corporation. The home was razed, and the Hotel Walt Whitman was erected in its place. Mrs. Hanford subsequently moved to Haddonfield NJ.

Alice B. Hanford, was quite active in the Camden Day Nursery, serving as that organization's president in the late 1920s.
