Dorothy Howell Rodham & Virginia Clinton Kelley
June 11, 2012 - November 25, 2012
Born at the close of World War I and on the cusp of the Roaring Twenties, Dorothy Howell Rodham and Virginia Clinton Kelley came of age in a changing America. The Great Depression and World War II defined their generation, and both women overcame obstacles to provide nurturing homes filled with love and support. Their lives were an inspiration to their family, friends, and those who knew them.
The original 19th Amendment will be on loan from the National Archives in Washington, DC starting October 19 - 24, 2012. Dorothy's birthday, June 4, 1919, was the same day Congress, by joint resolution, approved the women's suffrage amendment and sent it to the states for ratification.
