Houston Suffragists Project

Last fall, five HGF members, Rae Bryant, Monica Andersen, Mary Hollis, Ginny Douglas, and Barbara Richards,  inspired by the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment,  teamed-up to look for Houston suffragists from 1920. After scouring Houston’s archival closets looking for suffragists and with additional research help from HGF members Lynda Collins, Randy Pace, and Carolyn Shimek, they uncovered the story of the first women to vote in federal elections in Texas and data on several thousand 1920 suffragists. With the help of Walter Steets, they developed the Houston Suffragists Project website to tell the story of this election and allow you to search for women who were part of this history.
