As part of the upcoming 100th anniversary in 2020 of the ratification of the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote, it is fitting to recognize a remarkable individual from our community, Mary Holloway Wilhite, who was a suffrage and women's rights leader as well as our first local female physician. The LWV of Montgomery County is raising funds to have a national historical marker installed in honor of Dr. Wilhite.
The Wilhite Marker will be installed at the corner of Wabash Avenue and Grant Street, the site of Mary Holloway Wilhite's former home.
If you are interested in donating to the Mary Holloway Wilhite Historical Marker Project, please make your donation to the LWV of Montgomery County and send to : LWVMC, P.O. Box 101, Crawfordsville, IN 47933, Attention: Wilhite Marker. The League is very appreciative of gifts already received from the DAR, Genealogy Club, and other members of the community .
