Goodnow, Helen Elizabeth, 1894-

Hide Profile

Helen Elizabeth Goodnow was born in 1894, probably into a well to do family, and lived in the Boston area. In the 1910s she campaigned for suffrage in Boston, serving as chairman of Ward 25 in Brighton, perhaps under the auspices of the Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association. Goodnow probably accompanied Margaret Foley on her "Southern Trip" in 1916. She was living with Foley at the time of the latter's death.
