Abstract:

Politician Wilhelmina R. Delco was born on July 16, 1929. She received her B.A degree in sociology from Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1950.

This made her the first woman and the second African American to hold the second highest position in the Texas House of Representatives until 1993.
