Biographical Note

Drusilla Wilson (1815-1908) was a nineteenth century Quaker temperance leader. She traveled thousands of miles, giving hundreds of lectures, to promote the prohibition amendement in Kansas. She was also active in purity work in Indiana and would be seen as a great leader and supporter in Indiana and Kansas. Though most of her speeches and writings are gone, Drusilla Wilson has been remembered as a feminist, an activist, and a strategist. Source: materials in collection.
