Kids’ Corner – A Vote for Susanna: The First Woman Mayor

Good Day Kansas

We had a great time learning about an incredible Kansan today during our Kids Corner segment. Many may not have heard the name Susanna Salter before, however Susanna Salter was the First Woman Mayor in the world. In 1887 she was elected mayor of Argonia, KS.

Her story of unexpected and unprecedented events is told beautifully and in a child friendly way by children’s author, Karen M. Greenwald. Karen recently published A Vote For Susanna The First Woman Mayor and joined me today to share her passion for Susanna’s story. Karen wants to make sure Kansans are well informed and proud of the trailblazer and have an opportunity to share the tale with generations to come.

A Vote For Susanna is available for purchase at the Kansa Historical Society and on their website. You can follow along with Karen and learn more about her research in writing this book by visiting her website:
