Award for “A Brief but Spectacular History of Women’s Suffrage in America”
On Wednesday, April 13th, 2022, our League received the Peter White Award from the Marquette Regional History Center in the Fred Rydholm Gathering Hall to honor the 2020 presentation “A Brief but Spectacular History of Women’s Suffrage in America” led by Pri Burnham. This award honors foundations, organizations, companies, and institutions for exceptional effort in the enhancement, restoration, conservation, or interpretation of the history of our area. They said that our League “presented an original and historically accurate accounting of the one-hundred-year celebration of woman’s suffrage in our country and our area. This presentation was a wonderful event that captured the rigorous campaign to ratify Women’s Suffrage into law, using local citizens to tell the story”
