Notes: On June 26, 1938, Sequoia National Park superintendent Colonel John R. White dedicated the tree to honor social reformer and women's rights activist Susan B. Anthony who had died 32 years earlier.
Unable to attend the dedication ceremony, President Franklin D. Roosevelt wrote, "In strength and stability the tree in Sequoia National Park is symbolic of Susan B. Anthony's character. In honoring her we likewise pay tribute to all valiant souls whose effort, supplementing hers, at length gave to American women the right of equal suffrage with men in their conduct of Governmental affairs. Their labors deserve to be held in everlasting remembrance."
