Hi Folks,

I ran across this recently and remembered that several teams were working on
suffrage projects. It's an on-line archive of oral histories, with key
movement leaders, interviewed by a very smart historian, Sherna Gluck. Hope
it's helpful. Would love to hear how those projects are developing.

Best to all,

Bret Eynon

Subject: Suffragists oral histories now available online

In the early 1970s the Suffragists Oral History Project, under the
auspices of the Bancroft Library's Regional Oral History Office, collected
interviews with twelve leaders and participants in the woman's suffrage
movement. Tape-recorded and transcribed oral histories preserved the
memories of these remarkable women, documenting formative experiences,
activities to win the right to vote for women, and careers as leaders of
the movements for welfare and labor reform, world peace, and the passage
of the Equal Rights Amendment. Now, 25 years later, the nineteenth century
meets the twenty-first as the words of these activist women, born from the
1860s to the 1890s, are made accessible for future scholarly research and
public information via the Internet.
Seven major figures in twentieth-century suffragist history are
represented here with full-length oral histories. These include Alice
Paul, founder and leader of the more militant organization called the
National Woman's Party, which made suffrage a mainstream issue through
public demonstrations and protests; Sara Bard Field, a mother, lover,
poet, and social and political reformer, whose interactions with
California artists and political activists gave her a national profile;
Burnita Shelton Matthews, a District of Columbia federal judge; Helen
Valeska Bary, who campaigned for woman's suffrage in Los Angeles and later
had a prominent career in labor and social security administration;
Jeannette Rankin, a Montana suffrage campaigner and the first woman
elected to Congress, who recalls Carrie Chapman Catt, the League of Women
Voters, and her lifelong work for world peace; Mabel Vernon, who is
credited for the advance work of gathering the throngs of people to greet
Alice Paul and her entourage on their famous coast-to-coast suffrage
campaign in the fall of 1915; and Rebecca Hourwich Reyher, who gives an
account of working with Alice Paul in organizing the Woman's Party.
The oral histories of five rank-and-file suffragists are collected in The
Suffragists: From Tea-Parties to Prison, conducted by Sherna Gluck,
director of the Feminist History Research Project. These women spoke out
for suffrage from horse-drawn wagons and streetcorner soapboxes. Some
discussed politics in genteel tea parties, others were arrested for
picketing for suffrage in front of the White House. These five interviews
represent the diversity of ordinary women who made woman's suffrage a
reality, documenting their motivations and ethical convictions, their
family, social, and regional backgrounds, and their part in the campaign
for women's right to vote.
The oral histories are now available online, and we invite you to use
them. The address is:
