I have come across a video that features the New York City home of Inez Milholland, the US suffrage martyr.

Inez died in 1916 in California when on a lecture tour of the US West.

My grandmother, Edna Kearns, worked with Inez Milholland in the New York State suffrage movement.

I knew this and more whern I collaborated with Robert J. Cooney, Jr. in 2016. We c0-chaired a national celebration to recognize the centennial of Milholland’s death for the National Women’s History Alliance.

Among other things, we featured Inez Milholland’s childhood home in Lewis, New York but didn’t know where Inez lived in New York City when she lived

there. This video is a major contribution to the story of Milholland’s life.
