Glendolen T. Bens

(1878–1928) Glendolen was a press secretary for the New York State Woman Suffrage Party, representing Oneida and Herkimer counties. The records she compiled from party meetings and activities between 1915–1919, archived by the New York State Library, document the party's efforts in securing women's voting rights.

Glendolen worked to raise funds in support of Alice Paul and other members of the National Woman's Party who were serving jail sentences for protesting in front the White House in Washington, DC. She was also a founding member of the New York State League of Women Voters.
