Social Reformer. Born near Mariners Harbor, Staten Island, New York, Ella Reeve grew up in Bridgeton, New Jersey. After her marriage in 1882, she became involved in a number of reform movements, notably the Woman's Christian Temperance Union and the women's rights movement. In 1897 she joined the Social Democratic Party. In 1908 she became the first woman to run for state office when she filed for secretary of state of Connecticut. In 1910 she joined in forming the National Women's Committee of the Socialist Party. She ran for lieutenant governor of New York in 1918. She was among the radical faction of the Socialist Party that was expelled in 1919 and then organized independently as the Communist Labor Party. From 1922 to 1948 she sat on the Central Committee of the Communist Party. In 1938 she was the Communist candidate for governor of Pennsylvania.
