Founded in March 2021, the Francis and Virginia Minor Memorial Institute exists as an online archive of information about their lives collected into an easy to use resource. We hope that it will help spread the word about the groundbreaking achievements of these two forgotten suffragists.


In order to keep these pages easy to read, most information on this site is not footnoted. However, sources for information are available upon request. Please email Nicole Evelina with any questions. For the pages that do have footnotes, a corresponding bibliography may be found on the page called Researching the Minors. This bibliography is different than the one that appears in America’s Forgotten Suffragists because it includes information and sources the book does not.
