Studio portrait of Carrie Lane Chapman Catt

Studio portrait of Carrie Lane Chapman Catt | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
Waist-up portrait of Carrie Chapman Catt, one of the best known leaders of the women's suffrage movement who had strong ties to the North Country and who once "inflamed" the countryside with her oratory.  Carrie Lane was born in Ripon, Wisconsin, on January 9, 1859, the daughter of Lucius Lane and Maria Clinton Lane. Both of her parents had graduated from Potsdam Academy, and several generations of the Lane family had farmed the family homestead in West Potsdam, NY for many years. Lucius and Maria had gone west in 1855, soon after their wedding, but both families remained well-known locally. Catt's girlhood home is the site of the future Carrie Chapman Catt Museum.  Carrie worked as an organizer for the National American Woman Suffrage Association from 1890 to 1900, when she became its national president. She led the campaign to win women's suffrage with a federal amendment to the constitution until 1920 when the 19th amendment was ratified.
