Louisville Suffrage Centennial Events - What's In the Works So Far

KY Woman Suffrage

Here's a list of planned events in Louisville that was forwarded to me from Genie Potter (representing KY with Vision 2020 in Philadelphia) and Marsha Weinstein (President of Board of Directors, National Collaborative for Women's History Sites now housed in the Francis Willard house museum in Indiana, and leading the collaborative National "Votes for Women" Trail).

Mary Verhoeff, 1872 (?)-1962 Louisville Geographer and Suffragist

Mary (sometimes called Marie) Verhoeff was born around 1872 (several different birth dates are recorded) in Louisville. Her father, Herman Verhoeff, was born in 1827 in Westphalia, Germany; landed in New York with his family in 1836; and moved with them to Kentucky in 1838. Herman went into the grain business in Louisville and in 1873 built the first grain elevator south of the Ohio.
