Item: [photograph] WCTU Southern Oregon group of women 1912

Description: Probably taken in the spring or early summer of 1912 in southern Oregon. Possibly a gathering of the WCTU or a women's suffragette group. Photograph of a group of women. Image is 6.25 x 8.25 inches and is mounted on a board (10 x 12). Little bit of pencil scribble over the lap of the lady holding the infant. The mounting board is soiled and worn and has some chipping to its edges. The photograph comes from the studio of C. K. [Culver Kneal] Norcott, who owned a studio in Grants Pass.

Group of 35 women, with three girls and an infant, gathered in front of a building that shows a dedication plaque stating "Erected under the direction of the Ladies' Civic Improvement Club 1912". Many of the women are wearing hats and the girls wear elbow length sleeves. Several women are wearing ribbons and a few have medals shaped like a cross pattee with a large globe or disc in the center (possibly WCTU medals). Behind them is flying a 46-star American flag (which was in use until July 3, 1912).

Notable events for women in 1912 in Oregon: in October, the WCTU held its national convention in Portland, and in the November election women won the right to vote and to hold political office.
