As a precursor to the broadcast of a panel discussion focused on the role of men in the women's suffrage movement which took place on Thursday, October 17, 2019, at the National Archives, I am pleased to share the following biographical sketch of a Sonoma County "suffragent" named Emmett Seawell (1862-1939) written by Steven M. Lovejoy, president of the Sonoma County Genealogical Society and member of the Sonoma County Historical Records Commission.
