How interesting to learn how Herbert Owen (1858-1931) (my great-great grandfather) contributed to the progress of bicycling in the turn of the century. His wife was a big suffragist and traveled and spoke all over the country for women's rights along with starting a New York school empowering hundreds of women to be trained as wireless operators during World War I while the men went to fight at the front. Their daughter Elise went on to be a pilot and was a flight instructor for the military during World War II. The whole family was big on gender equality before its time.

That's fascinating. Thanks for letting me know.
