Memorial Program, Inez Boissevain

Memorial Service: Inez Milholland Boissevan was a popular speaker for the cause of suffrage, and she refused to cut back her schedule to accommodate her pernicious anemia. She collapsed during a speech in Los Angeles on October 22, 1916. At the hospital, blood transfusions over the next days could not save her, and she died November 25, 1916. Many suffragists considered her a martyr to the cause of woman suffrage. Here, she was depicted with the white horse she rode at the head of the suffrage parade, March 3, 1913.
