A new exhibit at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium highlights those locally who fought to pass the 19th Amendment.  “From Anna Bell Lawther and Mary Newbury Adams to May Rogers, Clara Aldrich Cooley, and many others, Dubuque women were vocal in the fight for equal suffrage rights,” says Cristin Waterbury, Director of Curatorial Services for the Dubuque County Historical Society, which operates the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium.

The mini-exhibit features artifacts associated with the suffrage movement and key historical figures who fought for the 19th Amendment at its 100th anniversary.
