Margaret Van Voorhis Smith

(1877–1965) School teacher and librarian, Margaret was an active member of the The Victor Equal Suffrage Association founded October 4, 1913 at the home of Miss Mary L. Draper. Members held monthly meetings, had bake sales, marched in parades in Rochester and New York City, and went to county and state suffrage conventions. All of the known members were also members of the Victor Unity Club, nearly half went to the Universalist Church, and most were in their 40s and 50s when most active.
