19th at 100: Commemorating the Suffrage Struggle and Its Legacies in Northeast Ohio

Cornelia Cassady Davis

Cornelia Cassady Davis was born in 1868 in Cleves, Ohio. She is best known for her paintings of Arizona and New Mexico, especially those of Native American daily life and rituals, including from the Moqui, Navajo, and Zuñi nations. She was the first woman admitted to a Cincinnati Art Club life class, and also formed her own group of female artists: the Fine Arts League. Her poster design for the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association won Best Suffrage Poster, and is now the main image used to represent Ohio suffrage efforts.
