- - Title transcribed from item.
- - Elizabeth S. Rogers (Mrs. John Rogers, Jr.), of New York City, was the wife of a prominent thyroid specialist and a descendent of Roger Sherman, signer of the Declaration of Independence. She was a civic reformer working to improve New York public schools and win suffrage in the state of New York before joining the national suffrage movement. She was chairman of the Advisory Council of the NWP and one of the most forceful speakers in the "Prison Special" tour of the country, during which suffragists spoke of experience in jail. She was arrested July 14, 1917 picketing the White House and was sentenced to 60 days in Occoquan Workhouse, but was pardoned by President Woodrow Wilson after three days.
