Pantheon: Mary Harris Jones, "Grandmother of All Agitators"

School teacher, seamstress, businesswoman, community organizer, Chicago girl and Ireland-born, Mary Harris "Mother Jones" (1837-1930) had big ones. What a resume, most of it built after she turned 50.

Denounced on the U.S. Senate floor as the "grandmother of all agitators."
