Lindseth collection of American woman suffrage, [ca. 1820-1920].

The collection includes rare books, periodicals, pamphlets, broadsides, convention leaflets, letters, cartoons, photographs, banners, campaign buttons, and other objects. Highlights of the collection include campaign literature produced by suffrage organizations such as the National American Woman Suffrage Association and the Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage, and the writings of prominent women activists Jane Addams, Susan B. Anthony, Alice Stone Blackwell, Carrie Chapman Catt, Maria Weston Chapman, Caroline Dall, Mary Abigail Dodge, Abigail Scott Duniway, Margaret Fuller, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Angelina and Sarah Grimké, Ida Husted Harper, Julia Ward Howe, Mary Putnam Jacobi, Mary Livermore, Lucretia Mott, Sylvia Pankhurst, Alice Paul, Jannette Rankin, Anna Howard Shaw, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone and Frances Willard. The collection also contains Margaret Fuller's personal copy of Goethe's Werke, an inscribed edition of Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Yellow Wall Paper, and several letters by suffrage leaders Susan B. Anthony, Carrie Chapman Catt, Margaret Fuller, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Julia Ward Howe, Lucretia Mott, Alice Paul, Anna Howard Shaw, and Lucy Stone. While the majority of the collection documents the work of pro-suffrage forces, also present are a number of publications arguing against universal suffrage, such as leaflets distributed by the Woman's Anti-Suffrage Society, and the New York State Association Opposed to Woman Suffrage. The collection also contains issues of scarce women's magazines that were published in support of the suffrage movement, such as The Revolution, The Suffragist, The Woman Citizen, and Woodhull and Clafin's Weekly.
