In 1912 the Kentucky General Assembly passed legislation giving literate women who otherwise met the same requirements as men, the right to vote in school elections. Sixty-one women in forty-eight counties were elected as County Superintendent of Schools in the years before this legislation was passed. Amanda T. Million was the first female superintendent in Kentucky. She was appointed in 1886 to fill her deceased husband’s unexpired term and was subsequently elected to the office twice.
Seventy-six Kentucky women were elected County Superintendent of Schools in the 24-year period from when the first female superintendent in Kentucky was elected until the first election when all eligible Kentucky women could vote in school elections. This document contains a list of these women and the years they served.
