Ingersoll Daughter Linked to Suffrage in New York State
November 30, 2020
Maud Ingersoll Probasco, youngest daughter of nineteenth-century agnostic orator Robert Green Ingersoll, served as treasurer of the New York State Woman Suffrage Association (NYSWSA) in 1913.
This fact, uncovered in the course of unrelated research, has been added to the NYSWSA profile page. There it is also noted that Robert Ingersoll's eldest daughter, Eva Ingersoll, was even more deeply involved as a feminist and suffragist based in New York City, but she never held formal office in the NYSWSA as Maud did.
