Mrs. Grace Wilbur Trout

Mrs. Grace Wilbur Trout, the woman who is said to have done more to bring equal suffrage to Illinois than any other woman in that state, was born in Iowa, educated in the schools of Iowa and lived here until after her marriage.  Her public work having been for the greater part done since moving to Chicago, her name is associated with the activities of Illinois women.  She was born in Maquoketa and attended the public schools there.  She was married in Maquoketa to George W. Trout and lived there for several years after their marriage.  She is the mother of three sons, the youngest of whom died in 1912, at the age of twenty-one.  A number of years ago she made a study of Mormonism, in its religious, social and political phases and as a result of that study wrote a book "A Mormon Wife."  She is a lecturer of marked ability and has lectured in eight different states on the chautauqua platform and before clubs and city audiences.  Her best known lectures are Suffrage from an American Woman's Standpoint and The English Novel as a Social Protest.  She is state president of the Illinois Equal Suffrage Association and led the campaign in Springfield which brought equal suffrage to Illinois in 1913.  She is president of the Ladies' Auxiliary of the Ashland Club of Chicago, a member of the West End Woman's Club, of the Chicago Woman's Club, of the Chicago chapter D. A. R., and was president of the Chicago Political Equality League 1911-12.  Her home is at 434 Forest Ave, Oak Park, Chicago.
