Goucher College Women’s Suffrage Marker Dedication
Goucher College and the Maryland Women’s Heritage Center will host a dedication for a new historic marker commemorating the institution’s contributions to the suffrage movement.

The marker dedication will take place beginning at 3 p.m. in front of the Dorsey College Center on campus. The program that afternoon will begin with a program at Buchner Hall featuring several presentations about Baltimore’s women’s suffrage movement. Speakers include: Dr. Jean H. Baker, professor emerita at Goucher College; Dr. Ida Jones, archivist at Morgan State University; and Beverly Carter, archivist with the DuBois Circle of Baltimore.
