48 CITIZENS AT LAST The ratification of the federal amendment ended the woman suffrage movement in Texas. During the remainder of 1919 thirteen other states approved it.

Elizabeth Taylor, college and university teacher for four decades, is a pioneer historian of woman suffrage. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Georgia, Dr. Taylor went on to earn an M.A. in American history from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Dr. Taylor taught at Judson College in Marion, Alabama, between 1940 and 1941, and at Texas Woman's University in Denton from 1943 to 1981. In 1979 Texas Woman's University honored her with its Cornaro Outstanding Professor Award. That same year she was designated a Piper Professor by the Minnie Stevens Piper Foundation of San Antonio. In 1981 Dr. Taylor retired from the history department at Texas Woman's University and was granted Professor Emerita status. Dr. Taylor's dissertation was published as The Woman Suffrage Movement in Tennessee in 1957, and in 1978 it was reissued as a volume of the Farrar, Straus, and Giroux Octagon Book Series of scholarly-outof -print books for which there is continuing demand.
