Abstract:

This collection consists of biographical sketches, correspondence, diaries, genealogies, photographs, photo albums, memoirs, memorabilia, postcards, scrapbooks, and travel journals dating from 1814 to 1987. This material documents various aspects of the daily lives and activities of both famous and unknown women from diverse backgrounds. About half of the collection dates from the 19th century and consists primarily of correspondence, diaries, and unpublished memoirs from unknown, or little known, women. There are a few letters from well-known figures such as Susan B. Anthony, Alice Stone Blackwell, Edward Hale, Julia Ward Howe, and Frances Willard; a photo of Harriet Beecher Stowe; and autographed quotations by William Lloyd Garrison, Isabella Beecher Hooker, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. 20th century material includes photographs (both loose and in albums), some genealogical material, and other miscellaneous memorabilia. Well-known figures represented in the correspondence include Booker T. Washington and Madame Chiang Kai-shek.
