Elizabeth Best Ford

(1869–1953) Elizabeth was the founding mother of the St. Lawrence County League (of Women Voters). She was the chair for several years, and the regional chair for the area. In a letter in the League archive, the author describes being motored to Ogdensburg by Mrs. Elizabeth Ford, to call upon each of the members to rejoin and to recruit new members.
