Agnes Wright Spring

Jun 20, 2020


Join us as we learn how one strong woman from the past helps connect Colorado to the national women’s suffrage movement. Agnes Wright Spring was an author, suffragist, and historian. Her work in the fields of applied history and the history of the American West as an author and education advocate were just part of an impressive career. But that work has rarely had the recognition it deserves. Spring’s efforts, primarily in Colorado and Wyoming, represent the dedication of a well-educated and socially in-tune woman who wanted to change the trajectory of history as a discipline.

Kaylyn Mercuri leads this talk. Mercuri is pursuing a master's degree in history, with a focus on public history, at the University of Colorado Denver. She served as a Fellow at the Center for Colorado Women’s History at the Byers-Evans House Museum.
