A Triumph, December 1938

Description

Notes from Estelle Cuffe Hawley titled "A Triumph", 1938. She describes a party for retiring Mayor Wright and how she is kindly escorted by Alderman Beatty to the bar. She describes the initial issues between Beatty and herself and his general opposition to her ideas. They later "found much common ground, including a sense of humour." She concludes by restating the words Beatty shared at the party, "and then he said something like this, after paying tribute to the Wright's 'I would like to say something about alderman Cuffe. You all know I didn't want her or any woman on council. But I would like to say this, if the women of St. Catharines can produce more women like Alderman Cuffe, they can have my seat."
