Anna M. Scott was a suffragist, and during the early 1900s (1900-1930 especially), she became one of Colorado's most influential political figures. She certainly was one of the few women to exert such influence in Denver politics. Active in the Republican Party, she was said to wield so much influence with female voters (and with many men) that candidates stood no chance unless she approved of them. A 1908 article by (Alfred) Damon Runyon referred to her as "the Woman Boss of Denver." A philanthropist, a club-woman, and a tireless volunteer, she died at age 84. (bio by: Donna Halper)
