The cover shows the statue of Sacajawea which still stands in Portland’s Washington Park. The statue had been commissioned by Oregon suffragettes, and paid for by donations from women nationwide, to be displayed at Portland’s 1904-1905 Lewis & Clark Exposition. The suffragettes hired a woman from Denver, Alice Cooper, to sculpt the statue. Portland moved the statue to the park after the fair.
