Eva S. Jacobs

(1879–1919) Eva was a member of the Empire State Federation of Womens Clubs, lead and supported by Black women. Few records exist of her life as a clubwoman. She served as a delegate in 1913 when the club endorsed suffrage, and a 1914 newspaper notice reveals that “Miss Eva Jacobs, Mrs. W.H. Williams, Miss Beatrice Jackson, Mrs. Addie Jackson left Friday to attend the Federation of Women’s Clubs.”. Eva was an acquaintance of Mrs. Addie Jackson, financial secretary of the Federation, who also resided in her town.
