Biographical note

Helen Hamilton Gardener was the pen name of Alice Chenowith Day, a vice-president of National American Woman Suffrage Association, and the first woman appointed to the U.S. Civil Servive Commission. In "Sex in Brain," she challenged previously held notions that women were intellectually inferior to men on the basis of brain physiology. This memorial service includes eulogies by Carrie Chapman Catt, Maud Wood Park, and her colleagues at the Civil Service Commission.
