Young Dixie Bibb

Montgomery native Dixie Bibb (1882-1965), shown here as a young debutante, was the first woman to serve in the U.S. Senate from Alabama. An active political organizer and woman suffrage supporter, she served as a senator from 1937-38 after being appointed by her husband, two-term Alabama governor Bibb Graves.
