Anthony (Susan B.) - Avery (Rachel Foster)

Title: ANTHONY - AVERY PAPERS
Date range: (1882-ca. 1915)
Location: D.16
Size: 4 boxes

 

 


 


The Anthony - Avery collection consists mainly of the correspondence between Susan Brownell Anthony and Rachel Foster Avery. The correspondence dates between the years 1882 to 1908, with the greatest number of letters having been written in 1887, 1897 and 1898. Most of the letters were written by Susan B. Anthony to Rachel F. Avery (161): there are also 36 retained carbons of Mrs. Avery's letters to Miss Anthony. Other women active in the suffrage movement who are represented in the collection by correspondence to either Miss Anthony or Mrs. Avery are: Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Carrie Chapman Catt, May Eliza Wright Sewall, Harriet Taylor Upton, Isabel Howland, Lillie Devereux Blake, Anna Howard Shaw, Lucretia Longshore Blankenburg, Elizabeth Blackwell, and Mary Garrett Hay. A chronological list of all the correspondence is included in this register.

As corresponding secretary of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, Mrs. Avery played an integral part in all the plans and problems of that organization. The correspondence to and from her, therefore, reflects many facets of the suffrage movement including the plans for the 40th (1888) and 50th (1898) anniversary celebrations of the beginning of the women's suffrage movement: the strategies for adding women's suffrage amendments to the constitution of various states: the problems of winning converts to the cause and raising money: the writing of Miss Anthony's biography and the personal relationship between Susan B. Anthony and Rachel Foster Avery.

A synopsis of each letter was created by University of Rochester undergraduate Lagusta Yearwood (class of 2000) as part of an internship in the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections during the academic year of 1999/2000. Material from this collection and other Anthony collections are included in the online exhibition, Susan B. Anthony Celebrating "A Heroic Life."

The collection of Avery family papers was purchased at Charles B. Hamilton auction of February 3, 1972, sale no.55, item 41, with funds provided by an anonymous donor.
Accruals added in 2014 acquired from members of the Cleborne Family (descendants of Rachel Foster Avery) through a combined gift / purchase agreement, and separately also by purchase from the American Eagle Auction and Appraisal Company and the Super Auction in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Scanning services donated by Kodak Alaris.
