Report of Membership Chairman, Virginia, April 3, 1918. A recent checking of books at Headquarters shows that we now have 533 members, 120 of whom are men. On June 10, 1917, we had 441, 113 being men. We have members at seventy one points. See attached list. The following named places have members as listed and have some organization and should do good work: Alexandria, 17, Mrs. C. E. Nicol, Appomattox, 7, Miss Anna Jones, Ballston, 6, Cherrydale, 7, Falls Churoh, 12, Highland Springs, 6, Mrs. Frank Read, Hopewell, 8, Dr. Carrie Davis, Lucketts, 4, Mrs. Emma Willard, Lynchburg, 17, Mrs. Christine Staton, Norfolk, 91, Miss V. D. Poindexter, Newport News, 24, Mrs. W. R. Jennings, Portsmouth, 6, Petersburg, 38, Miss Hariet J. Thomas, Richmond, 203, Roanoke, 15, Mrs. W. T. Barbour, Vienna, 5, Since we met June 10th, I have sent out 723 letters about this work, a large number of cards and considerable literature. Many lists have been made up giving lists of members at various points, and names of persons who might be interested, making suggestions etc. Of course the State membership chairman should be a person deeply interested in suffrage, willing to work for it, and with time and money to travel
