"Who's Who in Falls Church," Washington Bee, June 25, 1921, 1




Mrs. Jennie Tinner is one of the most progressive of our citizens. She is ever in the field of service of the kind that makes for better citizenship and better humanity. As a member of the Fairfax County Fair Association, the Household of Ruth, the Fairfax Branch of the N.A.A.C.P., and various church organizations, Mrs. Jennie is active and efficient. Whatever she starts in the interest of the people of the community is usually well done. Her husband who is president of the Branch of the N.A.A.C.P. finds her assistance valuable in helping him to carry out his program. Very few are busier than she, but there is always time to do more for others. We hope that her influence will last long in our midst.
