Frances E. Willard
TitleFrances E. Willard
DescriptionFrom text: "It is safe to say that no name among the residents of Evanston looms larger on the pages of the country's history than that of Frances Elizabeth Willard. In 1874, Miss Willard was elected president of the Illinois Woman's Christian Temperance Union, and gave her whole time to the work. In 1883, she projected the World's Woman's Christian Temperance Union, of which she later became president. 'Under her leadership the temperance Crusade... spread as if by magic throughout the United States. Not content with what she had accomplished here at home, on several occasions she visited England and assisted the temperance movement, where she addressed immense audiences in different parts of the country.'"
