My name is Anne Dallas Dudley. I was the daughter of a
wealthy Nashville family. As an adult, I became a leader in
Tennessee and the nation in the cause for women’s right to
vote. I had a husband and two children when I became involved
in the fight for suffrage. I joined a local suffrage association and
was soon elected president of the Tennessee Equal Suffrage
Association. Many of the women who worked for the right to
vote were stereotyped as mannish and childless radicals who
were trying to destroy the American family. Several of my
friends and acquaintances frowned upon the idea of women
voting, but I became devoted to the cause and campaigned
throughout the state, organizing leagues and speaking across
the United States. As I said, I was a family woman. Many “antis”
believed that the suffragists were against the family. My family
helped to stop this myth. I often brought my children with me
to suffrage parades across Nashville, and I frequently had my
picture taken with my children (like the one you see above).
Under my leadership, suffrage became more acceptable and
many women joined the movement.

My name is Harry Burn, and I was born in Niota,
Tennessee on November 12, 1895. I became the youngest
member of the state legislature when I was elected to the
House of Representatives for McMinn County at the age
of twenty-two. I am best remembered for a decision I
made during my first term in office. During the special
session of 1920, I voted with the anti-suffragists on
tabling the bill addressing the ratification of the 19th
Amendment. Not long after, I realized the resulting tie
vote of 48 to 48 to table the bill would result in the end of
further debate on the amendment. It was then that I
changed my mind about the vote. With the support I
received in a letter from my mother, Febb Burn, who
encouraged me to “...be a good-boy and help Mrs. Catt
put the ‘rat’ in ratification,” I voted to approve the 19th
Amendment. By doing this, Tennessee became the 36th
state to ratify the 19th Amendment. This granted
American women the right to vote. The remainder of my
life was spent in public service.

Albert Houston Roberts (July 4, 1868 – June 25, 1946)
was the 30th Governor of Tennessee from 1919 to
Roberts' single two-year term as governor was very
eventful. National Prohibition became the law of the
land with the ratification of the Eighteenth Amendment
and the enabling legislation for it, the Volstead Act.
Worker's compensation was enacted, and Roberts
called a special session of the Tennessee General
Assembly to consider the ratification of the Nineteenth
Amendment, national woman's suffrage. The legislature
ratified the measure by a single vote, completing the
drive for women's suffrage, as Tennessee became the
thirty-sixth state to do so, giving the measure the
constitutionally-required three-fourths of the then-48
states. The legislature almost immediately tried to
rescind its action, but this was disallowed.
After his term, Roberts returned to the practice of law.
