Description
This collection primarily contains letters and some manuscripts concerning the family affairs and women's suffrage activities of the family of American women's rights activist Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906).
Background
Various members of the family of American women's rights activist Susan B. (Susan Brownell) Anthony were active nineteenth- and twentieth-century reformers, but she stood out among them. Although early involved in the temperance and anti-slavery movements, her main concern became woman suffrage. Most of her time was spent in lecturing and campaigning. She was also an officer in the National Woman Suffrage Association and the National American Woman Suffrage Association.
