Anthony, Susan B.

Title: SUSAN BROWNELL ANTHONY PAPERS
Date range: 1846-1943
Location: A.A62
Size: 5 boxes, 1 volume

 

 


 

 

The Susan Brownell Anthony Papers consist mainly of Anthony's letters to Harriet Taylor Upton, a prominent Ohio suffragist who spent much of her time working in political circles to secure the vote for women. Most of the letters were written between 1889 and 1893 and discuss Mrs. Upton's efforts to secure Congressional support for the cause of women's suffrage.

Also included in the collection are 11 postcards written by Rachel Foster Avery to Susan B. Anthony. In 1883 Anthony and Avery spent several months in Europe and while Avery toured the continent, Anthony mostly remained in Britain.  Avery’s postcards kept Anthony informed of her travels. Anthony wrote one of the postcards from Paris to her sister Mary in Rochester; later postcards are to Anthony and Ida Husted Harper from individuals in England and Europe.

A chronological list of all the correspondence is included in this register. All of the correspondence has also been indexed. Material from this collection and other Anthony collections are included in the online exhibition, Susan B. Anthony Celebrating "A Heroic Life."

The letters to Harriet Taylor Upton were purchased from Adeline Roberts in 1939. Other letters were acquired by gift and purchase. The postcards were the gift of Jeffrey H. Miller, February 22, 2001.

It has been all these eight years a perpetual reminder of your beautiful mother & yourself. But the other day I met - a lady from Buffalo who told me of the illness & death of brave heroine Charlotte [Mullligan?] | will I remember her strong, sensible work, talk, & action - I admired her very much indeed - and took the greatest interest in her wonderful work & ways of accomplishing it - But she has finished her labors here - & gone to others that we know not of. If I remember rightly your mother passed to the beyond some time ago - So that now you alone are left of that lovely home trio of noble women - wishing you all good - and much happiness to the end of your sojourn here - I am very Sincerely & Sympathizingly yours Susan B Anthony"
