Fannie S. Faison

Some of you, especially those who attended the Faison Methodist Church in the 1950's, will recall Mrs. Fannie Faison, often referred to as "Cousin Fannie" in her later years. The above picture is a press photo from March 20, 1930, that included the following announcement: "Mrs. Fannie S. Faison, of Faison. N.C., social and political leader, has been nominated by President Hoover for the Officer of Collector of the Port of Wilmington, N.C. She will be the first woman to hold a major Federal office in North Carolina".
