On International Women’s Day, March 8, Roz Schliske and the Cheyenne League of Women Voters brought WY women’s history to the airways. They chose to honor the first First Lady of Wyoming, Isabella Campbell. Isabella married Governor John Campbell the first — appointed — governor of WY. John was halfway through his term when he and Isabella married. He died eight years after, she died 43 years later in 1923. They are buried together in Arlington National Cementary.
