From the Lakewood Cemetery tour booklet:

Clara Hampson Ueland was a champion of the women's suffrage movement in Minnesota. In 1920, she was president of the Minnesota Women's Suffrage Association when the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed giving equal voting rights to women. After the amendment passed, she remained in politics encouraging women to vote by forming the Minnesota League of Women Voters and becoming its first president. She also helped secure child labor laws and started the Minneapolis kindergarten system.
