U.S. Congresswoman. She attended Dick White College, Milton College, Winthrop Model School, Peabody College and Metropolitan College of Music and the Synthetic School of Music, New York. Entering politics, she was a member of the Tennessee State Democratic committee. In 1932, she elected first woman to represent Tennessee as a Democrat to the Seventy-second Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of her husband United States Representative Edward E. Eslick, serving until 1933. She was not eligible for reelection, for not having qualified for nomination as required by the Tennessee State law. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
