Knox County League of Women Voters celebrate at the newly unveiled Burn Memorial in downtown Knoxville on June 9, 2018.
Twins Abbay and Phoebe Wallace, second graders at Campus School in Memphis, hold their poster and photograph of their great-great-great-grandmother, Memphis suffragist Mamie Duffy Willingham. This is what’s in Mrs. Willingham’s obituary: “When Carrie Chapman Catt fired women with dreams of voting, Mrs.
Willingham was a member of the suffrage group here, and escorted by “stunning police officers”
—- led the group’s first parade down Main.” This was written on October 15, 1952.
