All About Harry T. Burn and the HTB Society

All About Harry T. Burn and the HTB Society

Harry T. Burn was the youngest member of the 1920 State Legislature in Tennessee.

His unanticipated “aye” vote broke the tie in the Tennessee House of Representatives and ensured ratification of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote.

Thirty-five other states had approved the amendment for ratification into the U.S. Constitution, and only one more state was needed. Mr. Burn pushed Women’s Suffrage in the USA over the edge, finally ratifying the Nineteenth Amendment.

The LWVFL Harry T. Burn Society is a committee comprised of donors who support the League’s efforts at both the state and local levels by contributing $1,000 or more per year.

By contributing $1,000 or more per year, Harry T. Burn Society members ensure that the League is better endowed as it strives to fulfill its numerous priorities.

Your gift can be made all at one time or broken up over the course of the year. Maximize the impact of your gift by directing it to either the tax-deductible Education Fund or the non-tax-deductible Advocacy Fund, or split it between the two. You may choose to share a portion of your gift with your local League chapter, thereby contributing to progress at both the state and local levels.

In appreciation for your support of LWVFL’s work, Harry T. Burn Society members receive:

  • Early registration for invitation-only League trips
  • Honorary Host Committee Membership
  • Tickets to League galas throughout the state
  • Recognition in The Florida Voter newsletter
  • Personalized Harry T. Burn Society name tag
