Author of “The Woman Suffrage Statue” Visits Warren

On Friday, April 7, Sandra Weber,  author of “The Woman Suffrage Statue,” visited  fourth graders at Warren Street School as part of their local history curriculum.

She told the story of  Adelaide Johnson’s Portrait Monument to Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, which is now at the Rotunda of the United States Capitol. Through narration, photographs and songs, Weber told the story of  sculptress Addie Johnson, the monument’s creation, the 100th anniversary of NYS suffrage for women and the  local connection to suffragist Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who was born and raised in Johnstown. Musical accompaniment  was provided by David Hodges.

Weber signed a copy of her book for the fourth graders and it was donated to the Warren Street School Library. The  presentation was sponsored by the Amsterdam-Gloversville-Johnstown branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) and  funded by a New York State AAUW Program Grant.
