Proposal to merge
The recap is not really about Harry T. Burn; it is a chapter in the history of the 19th amendment in which Mr Burn plays a part. In light of this, I propose merging this section with the section 19th Amendment in the article History of women's suffrage in the United States Comments? Suggestions? Please join the discussion at Talk:History of women's suffrage in the United States#Proposal to merge. Gosgood 12:17, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
Burn or Burns?
I just finished Not For Ourselves Alone and he is referred to as "Harry Burns." I cannot find a reference to him in the 15th Edition of Encyclopaedia Brit. to check it. Any decent online source available? Considering the number of historians who worked on the Ken Burns doc, it would be very surprising if it is indeed "Burn" and not "Burns."

The vote at the outset was on partisan lines, but when the name of Representative Harry T. Burn, Republican, of McMinn County, was called, he voted "Aye." The opposition then virtually conceded defeat, for Mr Burn had voted with them to table the resolution, and his change gave the suffregists the needed majority.

Statement after voting
According to the Ken Burns doc, Burn(s) says “I know that mother’s advice is the safest for a boy to follow,” which sounds much more likely for the period. RoyBatty42 23:25, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
