Ella Smith Hammond

(1857–1929) As an active member of the New York State Woman Suffrage Association, Ella S. Hammond served as a delegate to the national convention held in Minnesota in 1900. While chairman of the School Suffrage Committee, Hammond encouraged women to become active in their local school districts. On June 28, 1902, she published a circular that prompted women throughout the state to exercise their right to vote for school district trustees, and to aid in securing a woman trustee wherever possible.
