If These Guys Had Their Druthers




It has been a while since I sent a single message on two postcards, but it was bound to happen in the world of Postal Salute sometime.

I’m fascinated by this portrait of Carrie Chapman Catt. Her eyes and expression are so calmly serious, but lighter than a typical serious look somehow. I wonder what her personality was like, and how she ran her ship. Wikipedia has informed me that she was the only woman in her graduating class at Iowa State, two time president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association (at the helm at the passing of the 19th Amendment), and at one time the head of the International Woman Suffrage Alliance. Holy crap, this woman made things happen. I love voting!!!
