    Oh, I like this little snippet, too: http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=s5UwAAAAIBAJ&sjid=gS4DAAAAIBAJ&pg=7163,3445468&dq=emma+guy+cromwell&hl=en "Mrs. Cromwell Visits in the City Today"--so proper! Additionally, it might be useful to know in the future that Google News archives newspapers going all the way back to the 1920's (or earlier)! That is pretty cool.

    I found it intresting that Cromwell said she would not have pursued politics as a careear choice unless her husband and son would have died. She was clearly invested in her local community, but still valued the idea of being a mother and a wife. The responsibilities that come with that would of outweighted her committment to public office in the political world.

    It has short summaries of famous female Kentuckians. Cromwell is mentioned. While these are small blurbs, they are concise and provide a good starting point for further research on each of these women.

    This seems to be a news letter or article that has short bios on some of the most influential woman of Kentucky. It has several different categories including education pioneers reformers then the woman who were mover and shakers in that area.
