Biography of Catherine Waugh McCulloch

Catherine Waugh McCulloch (1862-1945) was a lawyer, suffragist and political activist. Catherine Waugh was educated at Rockford Female Seminary where she met Jane Addams and the two women became lifelong friends. From there she studied law in Chicago and was admitted to the bar in 1886. As a practicing lawyer, Waugh defended women beset by such problems as wage discrimination, divorce, child custody and abuse. The cases propelled Catherine Waugh into a leading role in the women's movement and made her a prominent advocate of women's suffrage in Illinois. She served on the National Woman Suffrage Association, the Illinois Equal Suffrage Association, the League of Women Voters, and the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. In 1913, she was appointed Dean of Law at the Illinois College of Law, and in 1917, she became the first woman Master in Chancery of the Cook County Supreme Court.
