1861 - 1958

An outspoken proponent of suffrage for women, she became the first of her gender elected to a municipal office in Sacramento, being swept into office by an all male electorate before women attained the right to vote. Widow of a politician and schoolteacher by avocation, she became a leader of the Progressive Republican Women and Sacramento's first Commissioner of Education in 1912.
