75th Anniversary

In two years League will celebrate its 75th anniversary and Leagues throughout the country are gearing up by looking back.

May 19, 1919 The House of Representatives passed the 19th Amendment, 304-90. Opponents blocked action in the Senate for another two weeks, delaying ratification by ensuring that most state legislatures had adjourned for the year.

June 4,1919 The Senate passed the 19th Amendment, with two votes to spare, 40 years after its first introduction in Congress. From Paris, President Wilson sent a cable of congratulations.

Call Evelyn Bender, 737-2524, to become part of LWVHI's celebration planning committee.
