Virginia Darlington Green portrait
Description: Portrait of Virginia Darlington Green of Cleveland, Ohio. Green (1851-1929) was born in Zanesville, Ohio, and moved to Cleveland after her marriage to Arnold Green. She was active in the suffrage movement as a member of the National American Woman's Suffrage Association and with local Cleveland chapters and the Ohio Woman's Suffrage Association. Green was elected to the Cleveland Board of Education in 1912, and served as a member until her death in 1929. This item comes from the Frances Jennings Casement Papers, a manuscript collection comprised of letters and association records related to the founding and leadership of the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association. Casement (1840-1928) was born in Painesville, Ohio, and graduated from Painesville Academy and Willoughby Female Seminary. Her father, Charles Casement, supported abolition and women's suffrage and encouraged Frances to be active in social causes. Frances Casement established the Painesville Equal Rights Association in 1883, and shortly after became involved in the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association, serving as its president from 1885 to 1888.
