Sally Millick presenting her talk

Congratulations to Sally Millick for her fascinating presentation at the Mourning in the Morning lecture series on March 14th. Sally's research on the women who voted with Susan B. Anthony and those who supported her during her suffrage activities was the product of much original research and analysis of primary documents. Her enthusiastic audience, which included many fellow SBA researchers, resulted in a wonderful exchange of information.

We at the FOMH are interested in video-taping Sally's power point presentation so that it will be available to the whole community of Susan B. Anthony aficionados.

Sally, one of our most respected researchers, will be leading two tours during our summer season, one on the Underground Railroad on May 23rd, and the second entitled "The Quest for Women's Suffrage and Equality" on June 11th and July 25th.

Thank you, Sally! And thanks to all the audience members who participated with such spirit.
