Jeanne Gehret is all about Susan B. Anthony. Ever since 1994, when she first served as a docent at the Susan B. Anthony House Museum, she has written books on Susan and portrayed her in costume. Since 2012, she has delved into a new area of research on Susan’s family, particularly her brother Daniel who emigrated to Kansas.
