First Woman Mayor
Prairyerth - William Least Heat-Moon

Women achieved the right to vote in stages in Kansas.  They could vote in school elections after 1861 and in municipal elections after 1887, the year Susanna Moore Salter of Argonia became the first woman to be elected to the office of mayor of any town in the United States.  The right of Kansas women to vote in state and national elections came eight years before the Nineteenth Amendment.

Leo E. Oliva, "Kansas: A Hard Land in the Heartland" (1988)
