Watkins Museum of History

Description: Join us onsite at the Watkins for a special presentation by local historian Kathryn Nemeth Tuttle in connection with our exhibit "Mothers of Invention: The Entrepreneurs and Innovators of Lawrence." The 1890s was a transformative decade for Lawrence and women played a crucial role, from Populism, to the Suffrage Movement, to education and libraries, to the Rational Dress Movement and the bicycle craze. Learn more about phenomenal women including Annie Diggs; Genevieve Howland Chalkley; Mamie Dillard; Carrie Langston Hughes; Mary Frances Simpson; Jane Snow; and Ida Hyde.
