Wells (1828-1921), president of the Mormon women's Relief Society, editor of Exponent, and president of the Woman Suffrage Association of Utah; and Reva Beck Bosone (1895-1983), Utah Congresswoman and the state's first female judge, who voted against the formation of the CIA and was smeared in the anti-communism crusade of the 1950s.
