Margaret McEchron Bowden

(1859–1925) Political Equality Club of Glens Falls met regularly at Margaret's home from 1914-1917 as her daughter Katharine Bowden held a number of elected positions within the club. A headline from that time reads: "Equality Club’s Society Event - Mrs. H. A. Bowden Generously Donates the Use of Her Home for the Occasion".

"The first society event given under the auspices of the Political Equality club took place Saturday afternoon in the home of Mrs. [Margaret] Bowden, Maple street, and proved a brilliant affair. Spring flowers were used throughout the house decorations, which were most effective. There were twenty-five tables of auction and five hundred in play... Ice Cream and cake was served. The proceeds amounted to $60, which will be used to carry on the work of the club. The members are exceedingly grateful to Mrs. Bowden, who made the party possible by loaning the use of her home for the occasion and furnishing the refreshments." Post-Star (Glens Falls, NY Warren County). May 4, 1914. P.5. Bio by Tisha Dolton.
