Constance Genevieve Howland Chalkley
Creator: Squires
Date: Between 1900 and 1919
This formal portrait represents suffragists Constance Genevieve Howland Chalkley, (1875-1965), of Lawrence, Kansas. Influenced in a suffragists upbringing from her parents the Rev. Clark G. Howland and mother Marcia Brown Howland to her aunt Wisconsin suffragists Rev. Olympia Brown, Genevieve campaigned tirelessly for the Nineteenth Amendment. She joined the Lawrence Equal Suffrage Association in 1904 to raise funds for women's public restrooms in downtown Lawrence, Kansas. In 1909 Genevieve was elected first Vice-President of the Kansas Equal Suffrage Association and organized counties in the Second Congressional District during the 1911-12 campaign season. After Kansas women won universal suffrage in 1912, she was elected state President of the re-named Good Citizenship League. She later served as President of the Douglas County League of Women Voters from 1921-1922. Actively involved in her community, Genevieve served on a number of committees which included: the Federation of Women's Clubs, the Kansas Council of Women and the Woman's Kansas Day Club. Later in life she became a member of the Kansas Colonial Dames, the Kansas Society of Mayflower Descents, and the Betty Washington chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Lawrence, Kansas. Genevieve's life as a civic leader came to an end at the age of eighty-nine. She is buried at Oak Hill Cemetery in Lawrence, Kansas beside her husband Thomas H. Chalkley (1858-1916).


Crazy quilt

Crazy quilt
Date: between 1880 and 1935
Crazy Quilt made up of irregularly shaped multi-colored silks, satins and many printed silk ribbons from meetings of the Kansas Federation of Women's Clubs, the Kansas Council of Women, State Bar Association, and other organizations. Dates on ribbons range from 1882 to 1930. One includes a 1928 Republican National Convention button depicting Kansan Charles Curtis. Most fabrics are outlined in featherstitch embroidery, with scattered embroidered stars and scissors. Hand-stitched. Bound in black velvet and backed in pale green silk. This quilt belonged to William Agnew Johnston and Mrs. Lucy Browne Johnston of Topeka. The Johnstons were active in the Kansas Equal Suffrage Association (K.E.S.A.) and the Men's Equal Suffrage League (M.E.S.L.) of Kansas, two organizations that were critical allies in the 1912 ratification of the Woman's Suffrage Amendment to the Kansas constitution. This amendment made Kansas the seventh state to enfranchise women. Lucy Johnston was president and campaign manager of K.E.S.A. in 1911-1912 during the final push for ratification. She also was active in other women's clubs and lobbied for better libraries around the state. Her husband, William Agnew Johnston, was Chief Justice of the Kansas Supreme Court and an active member of the M.E.S.L. of Kansas, an organization that canvassed the state for woman's suffrage.
