BIOGRAPHY

Carrie (Ashton) Johnson, editor, author, and suffragist, was born in Durand, Illinois, on August 24, 1863. She moved to Rockford, Illinois, when she was 15 and remained there most of her life. Johnson graduated from a business college in Rockford and in 1889 married Harry M. Johnson, then managing editor of Rockford's Morning Star. She wrote about domestic topics, temperance, and suffrage for several magazines. Johnson was a lifelong member of the Illinois Equal Suffrage Association (IESA) and served as its secretary under President Mary E. Holmes. For further biographical information, see A Woman of the Century (New York, 1893), page 421.
