Show Notes: Katie Sandwina

Tracy Wilson

George Grantham Bain Collection (George Grantham Bain Collection)

Katie Sandwina came from a family of circus performers, and as she grew into her own under the big top, she became famous as a strongwoman. She was also a wife and mother, and she made her mark as a woman who was both exceptionally powerful and typically feminine. She also worked for women's suffrage, earning her the nickname "Sandwina the Suffragette."

Our listener mail is a holiday card from Zack and Paloma, along with two notes that call back to our Big Inch Land Promotion episode, from Bryan and Kate.
