Edwine Blake Evans Danforth

(1863–1961) Her resolution to pledge suffrage organizations assistance to Herbert Hoover's Government Housewives League was adopted, and they met once a week in New York City. A newspaper quote of 1917 supported her many activities, writing "Mrs. Danforth brings to the office the advantage of years of experience, both in suffrage work and other forms of service. She is an active participant in the Red Cross and served as local Chairman of the Woman's League for National Services."
