Marion and Mayor Julius Frank Suffrage Sign

A National Votes for Women Trail marker honoring suffragists Marion Sanger Frank and her husband Mayor Julius Frank was installed on corner of Caroline St. and Ford St. in front of City Hall in Ogdensburg, NY. The great granddaughters of the Franks, city councillors, city manager, city historian and county historian were among those who attended the dedication of the new marker. This sign is a part of the National Votes for Women Trail, which spotlights the people and organizations involved in the U.S. women's suffrage movement, with over 2000 markers throughout the country. The markers were funded by the William G. Pomeroy Foundation and the federal Women's Suffrage Centennial Commission. City historian Julie Madlin, who spearheaded the efforts to recognize the Franks, was the event speaker. Family members shared letters and a journal with the audience. The tireless efforts of both Marion and Julius Frank were finally recognized and applauded.
