Description

This 6" x 3.75" (15.24 x 9.53 cm) photograph shows suffragist Harriet Taylor Upton giving a speech in Newbury, Ohio to a group of women on August 23, 1919. Upton (1854-1945) was born in Ravenna, Ohio and lived much of her life in Warren, Ohio. She served as treasurer of the National Woman's Suffrage Association and coordinated the business of the association from her home in Warren from 1903 to 1910. In 1918, Upton became the first woman appointed to the Warren Board of Education. After the 19th Amendment was passed giving women the right to vote in 1920, Upton became the first woman to serve as vice chairman of the National Executive Committee and made an unsuccessful run for Congress.
