About

Why is this person notable and influential?

From Wikipedia

Philip Cone Fletcher was the presiding elder of the San Antonio district of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. He received wide notice for advising girls and young women to use beauty aids if they wanted to. He also suggested that "courting places" be set aside for men and women to become acquainted with each other. In St. Louis, Missouri, these stances resulted in the revocation of an invitation to take over the pastorate of a church, so he went to Texas, where he remained.
