Short biography
Eliza Calvert, known as "Lida," was born in western Kentucky and worked as a teacher before marriage in 1885. She took the pen name Eliza Calvert Hall in honor of her grandmother, for her works such as Aunt Jane of Kentucky (1908). She was an active participant in the women's suffrage movement, serving as president of the Kentucky Equal Rights Association, and fought in particular for a woman's right to make her own will. She produced pamphlets for the cause under her married name of Mrs. Lida Calvert Obenchain.
