      Jessie Belle Hardy Stubbs MacKaye was originally from Chicago, and one-time president of the Milwaukee Women's Peace Society. She was Columbia University educated, and legislative chair of the Women's Peace Society in NYC. She was noted for "urging all women to remain unmarried or to refuse to bear children until some efficient means should be devised to secure the world against the devastation of war." Jessie Stubbs died by suicide in 1921. While grieving her death, husband Benton Mackaye began formulating the idea that became the Appalachian Trail.
