An earlier attempt to document significant women in Evanston

We aren’t sure of the exact date of this article, but believe it is from sometime in the early 1930s. The newspaper had asked readers to send in their suggestions for a list of important women in Evanston’s history.

Local woman Estelle Frances Ward, herself a woman-of-note, submitted a list of eight women she thought fit the bill.

They were: Miss Mulford, Mrs. John A. Pearson, Mrs. Henry Noyes, Mrs. Bishop Hamline, Mrs. May Haskell, Mrs. Jane Hoge, Elizabeth E. Marcy, and Mrs. Robert M. Hatfield.
