Elizabeth Hayward Causes: The 1900 Utah Elections, Part 2

A reader asked about the purpose of the different conventions represented by the ribbons in the last post. Here are articles about each of the four conventions.

February 24, 1900—Democratic County Convention—Deseret Evening News, page 1


"When Chairman Lloyd announced announced [sic] that the convention was in order the seats allotted to the delegates were well filled and a number of lady representatives graced the assemblage."

March 1, 1900—Democratic State Convention—Deseret Evening News, page 1-2



September 6, 1900—Democratic State Convention—Deseret Evening News, page 1


September 14, 1900—Democratic County Convention—Deseret Evening News, page 1


In this last article, Henry Hayward is listed as one of the officers of the Salt Lake Third Municipal Ward. I have just been assuming that the ribbons were Elizabeth's. Is it possible that Henry was the only delegate from the family? Or were both he and his wife Elizabeth delegates? I have no idea where I would find a list of the delegates to the four Utah Democratic Conventions in 1900. There were 540 delegates to the last convention.
