Joseph Hanover of Memphis — State Representative in 61st Assembly and fledgling attorney who argued eloquently and voted for limited suffrage bill in 1919. During the special session in August, 1920, he became floor leader in the House for suffrage forces; also a member of Carrie Chapman Catt's strategic planning group. Worked so tirelessly he lost 20 pounds, and his work was so effective that he became the target of anti-suffragist plots. Governor Roberts appointed a special bodyguard to protect him.
Joe Hanover's grave is located in Baron Hirsch Cemetery.
