Meet Wilmer R. Kearns, husband of suffragist Edna Buckman Kearns. This video is in response to those asking for more information about Wilmer and little Serena. They certainly had important roles to play in the suffrage movement. This video highlights Wilmer reading from a 1915 book (that he owned and loved) called "How It Feels to be the Husband of a Suffragette" by George Him. This book in the public domain is available on archive.org
