Abstract:

Elisabeth Gilman's papers reflect her many public activities. The papers consist of correspondence, speeches, writings, diaries, newspaper clippings, printed material, memorabilia, and photographs. From 1917 to 1919 Elisabeth volunteered with the YMCA in France. This work is documented in her letters home to her sister Alice and her aunt, Louise Gilman Lane. The letters apparently were returned to Elizabeth after she returned home and are filed with her papers. Elisabeth also wrote several articles about her war work which are included in the papers. After returning home, Elisabeth became active in progressive later Socialist Party activities. There are letters, speeches, writing, and clippings about her work for the unemployed and especially her forays into politics as a candidate for governor, senator, and mayor of Baltimore on the Socialist Party ticket. Elisabeth's personal life is less well-documented. There are scrapbooks, travel diaries, albums, and an autobiographical sketch which offer some information about her early childhood.
