I've collected some rare images of my life-impaired friends. Dorothea Hyams 1882-1953 Famous American Suffragist with the militant National Woman's Party. One of the Silent Sentinels, that were arrested in 1917 while picketing the White House, and went on hunger strike and endured forced feeding after being sent to prison Marie Selika Williams 1849 - 1937 American coloratura soprano, she was the first Black artist to perform in the White House in 1878. Due to her rendition of E. W. Mulder's "Polka Staccato", she was often called the "Queen of Staccato".

She achieved her international pilot license in 1921.

His distinctive style of facial hair became known as sideburns, derived from his last name.
