February 15 marks the bicentennial of the birth of Susan B. Anthony: the American abolitionist, educator and women's rights activist whose decades of work were hugely influential in the eventual ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1920) granting women's suffrage. We discovered recently that Anthony gave a speech here in Duluth on November 8, 1889. One of Anthony's published letters indicates that she stayed here for six days. Her host, Sarah Stearns of 1105 E. Superior Street, was co-founder of the Minnesota Woman Suffrage Association. The Duluth Herald covered Anthony's visit to Duluth including brief excerpts of her speech at The Temple Opera House at 201 E. Superior Street.
