1. Sewall House Marker
Inscription.  May Wright Sewall (1844-1920) was an educator, cultural leader, and organizer of the woman's suffragette movement in Indianapolis. She formed the Art Association of Indianapolis, which became the John Herron Institute and later became the IU Herron School of Art. She helped found the Equal Suffrage Society of Indianapolis and was a contemporary of Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. In 1881-1883, she led a campaign that narrowly failed to secure woman suffrage in Indiana. She was an early member of the Association of Collegiate Alumnae which became the American Association of University Women.
 
Erected by Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis.
