Louise Meyer Van Buskirk

(1845–1915) On September 6, 1902, the first meeting of the Pittsford Political Equality Club was held at the Main Street home of Louise Meyer Van Buskirk, daughter of German immigrants.

The Pittsford Club members felt a strong connection to the national and global movement. The following year the Club again met in the Van Buskirk home on February 13, 1903, “on account of a desire to make the February meeting an anniversary (in so far as we could) of the 83rd birthday of “The Grand Woman” Susan B. Anthony... The day is celebrated by Suffrage Societies throughout the world, on either Saturday or Monday. In large cities and towns they were to do some fine things, raise money, &c. to help the cause so dear to Miss Anthony’s heart, and for which she has toiled through a long life of self-denial...”
