Lavinia Margaret Engle

Finally, I think Lavinia Margaret Engle is worth mentioning because she was the first woman to serve on the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners and in 1929 she became the first woman from Montgomery County to be elected to the Maryland House of Delegates.  Additionally, Ms. Engle was one of the founders of the League of Women Voters of Montgomery County in 1920.
