Upton, Harriet Taylor, 1853-1945

Hide Profile

Suffragist and author Harriet Taylor Upton (1853-1945) was born in Ravenna, Ohio. Upon her father's election to Congress in 1880, she moved to Washington, D.C., where she developed a close acquaintance with national Republican leaders and came in contact with leading suffragists. In 1890 Harriet Upton joined the National American Woman Suffrage Association, serving as treasurer from 1894-1910. In addition, she was president of the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association (1899-1908 and 1911-1920), and edited Progress, a monthly suffrage paper (1902-1910). After the passage of the 19th Amendment, Upton was a vice-chairman of the Republican National Committee for four years. She retired from public life in 1931. For further biographical information, see Notable American Women, 1607-1950 (1971).
