Laura F Osborn (1866-1895) was a noted suffragist and a campaigner for school reform and temperence. She was a member of the Detroit school board and the first woman ever to be elected to any office in Detroit. Some of the reforms she successfully instituted include: school lunchrooms supervised by trained dietitians, special programs for children with special talents, special instruction for handicapped children, visual education, health education, and classes in manual and domestic arts. She devised better business methods for school administrators and insisted upon fire-proof school buildings. More info can be found here:
