Treasurers

TREASURERS….I know I’m not the first person to realize this, but here’s a list of the Treasurers of the United States since 1949:

  • Georgia Neese Clark

  • Ivy Baker Priest

  • Elizabeth Rudel Smith

  • Kathryn O’Hay Granahan

  • Dorothy Andrews Elston Kabis

  • Romana Acosta Banuelos

  • Francine Irving Neff

  • Azie Taylor Morton

  • Angela Marie Buchanan

  • Katherine D. Ortega

  • Catalina Vasquez Villalpando

  • Mary Ellen Withrow

  • Rosario Marin

Every single one is a woman. What’s the deal with this? How did it become a tradition that the Treasurer is always a woman?

Does anyone happen to know the answer to this?
