Gage, Matilda Joslyn, 1826-1898. Papers, 1840-1974 (inclusive) [microform].

Papers, 1840-1974 (inclusive) [microform].

Collection consists of correspondence, writings, photographs, and published articles by or about Gage. The correspondence is divided into two parts: family and other. The latter deals mainly with Gage's speaking engagements, writing, and other suffrage work, and consists mainly of single letters from notable men and women, with a larger number from Susan B. Anthony. Family correspondence consists primarily of letters to Thomas Clarkson Gage and Helen Leslie Gage from their parents. The letters include descriptions of the mother's suffrage work, advice to Thomas upon his marriage in 1885, and lengthy discussions of financial affairs, particularly regarding Thomas's business dealings in South Dakota. Letters written in later years reflect Matilda Gage's growing interest in spiritualism, with advice based on astrological and spiritual considerations. Also included are manuscripts of stories and essays by Gage, most undated; published pamphlets and addresses by Gage or her colleagues in the suffrage movement; and photocopies of two scrapbooks: one, assembled by Gage, of clippings by or about her; the other, belonging to Maud Gage Baum, containing clippings about the death of her mother.
