Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906), U.S. suffragist. As quoted in History of Woman Suffrage, vol. 5, ch. 4, by Ida Husted Harper (1922).
Attending the thirty-sixth annual convention (February 1904) of the National Woman Suffrage Association, Anthony was introduced to President Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919), who was not a woman suffrage advocate. Having succeeded to the Presidency after the assassination of President William McKinley, Roosevelt was now running for election to his second term (first full term). Anthony quoted herself as having said this to him.
