Reverend Eleanor Gordon1

Occupation*Reverend Eleanor Gordon was a Women's Suffrage Leader and an assistant minister of the First Unitarian Church, Des Moines, Polk County, Iowa.1
(Minister) Marriage7 August 1905She performed the marriage ceremony of Dr. William A. Sharp and Emma B. Conger on Monday evening 7 August 1905 in Des Moines, Polk County, Iowa, at the home of Emma's sister, Dr. Alice Conger Hunter.2,3
Historical Note* The First Unitarian Church of Des Moines had a committed congregation who were strong workers for what they envisioned as the needs of a better world. They placed a strong emphasis upon the right of women to full membership in society and resulted in an early tradition of choosing women as ministers of the church. The third full-time minister was the Rev. Ida C. Hulting, who came from Algona in October 1886. Another early minister was Mary Augusta Safford who served between 1899 and 1910, when she resigned because of poor health. The Rev. Safford was very active not only in church affairs, but also in the wider community. Her leadership was particularly noted in the suffrage movement, and in helping a women's group Unity Circle to become an important cultural group in the city. Unity Circle presented plays, organized lectures and musical events, and raised funds for needed community improvements. The public was invited to attend these events and did so.

Individual members of Unity Circle were also active in the affairs of the city and the state. For example, the Reverend Eleanor Gordon, who was for a time the assistant minister under Mary Safford and who, like Safford, was active in the suffrage movement, was attending a parlor meeting of Unity Circle one warm summer day when she decided that something dramatic needed to be done to stimulate public interest in the suffrage movement. She proposed that a march be held, and under her leadership, such a demonstration was held in Boone, Iowa. Some of the women in Unity Circle attended but others did not. However, at the head of the demonstration proudly marched not-quite-5-feet-tall Unity Circle member Mrs. Mary Jane Coggeshall, carrying the American flag. And be it noted that this street demonstration in Boone was the first such demonstration in the United States.1
