Scope and Content
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.

Mr. Hasbrouk was the husband of Lydia Sayer Hasbrouck, the editor of the Sibyl a newspaper published between 1856 and 1865 dedicated to the issues of reform of women's clothing. Anthony had received a bill for $13.95 from Mr. Hasbrouk for advertising in the Sibyl and responds.
The following is an excerpt from this letter: "The Editor of the Sybil [sic] and numbers of her subscribers had written me to know of whom W[omen's] R[ights] tracts could be had - & in return I sent a list... saying to her that she could answer the queries of her Sibyl readers, by inserting said list in said paper- and all that I said without the first idea of asking any obligations conferred on me - thinking only to oblige Mrs. H & her subscribers..."

Susan B. Anthony to Edwin A. Studwell, August 20, 1866 Susan B. Anthony to "Dear Cousin", August 7, 1867 Susan B. Anthony to Unknown Recipient, [1867?]
This letter fragment reads: "I enclose another little figuring from Kansas City. It is the first time I have seen the total registration. Only a little more than one half of the women who registered voted; first, because the mud was more than hub deep, the president of their club writing me they could not even send carriages off of the pavements without being stalled, and another reason was the fact that one ward was absolutely thrown out from some irregularity. One the whole I will enclose Mrs. Maher's letter, from which you will see that the corruption in Kansas City was about on the same order of Leavenworth, and that these two cities are just about like New York, San Francisco and all the others between the two oceans: the fact is there is no honesty among men the moment they touch political affairs. I do not send these documents expecting you to make even a paragraph, excepting it should be on the fact of the number of women who registered. You will find in the Leavenworth Time the story of the mud and the storm. Sincerely yours, Susan B. Anthony [Text aligned vertically, along right margin]: Please return the..."

Susan B. Anthony to Levi P. Morton, April 15, 1895 Susan B. Anthony to Dr. Nate J. Jackson, June 5, 1895 Susan B. Anthony to Clara Bewick Colby, January 12, 1897
Clara Bewick Colby was a key figure in the American suffrage movement. She founded Women's Tribune which was the country's leading suffrage publication. She participated in the publication of Elizabeth Cady Stanton's The Woman's Bible, referred to in this letter. There are several other key figures mentioned in this letter, including Elizabeth Burrill, Ernestine Rose, John Greenleaf Whittier and Frederick Douglass.
This letter reads: "My Dear Co-Worker By same mail goes the Pamphlet Report of the Convention of 1890- to which you served as 'Spiritual Undertaker'- for Curtis- Rose & Whittier - the [illegible] office you so flatly refuse to perform- last year- 1896- and because of it- we had no adequate word of Douglass. It was too cruel for you to throw up your official duties until you had served up that noble man of anglo-saxon [sic] mixture.- Thanks to the children for their surrender of the Dedication Page to S.B.A. I shall feel it a high honor to have my name stand thus with yours. On practical work for the ballow we have always pulled together- but on the side questions- marriage & divorce- per se, Bible Inspiration, - etc.- I have never felt with you- that we must first free women, & men too, from their time honored beliefs, & superstitutions but I think very persistently begged you and everybody to work for - to seek first- the Kingdom of political equality- that all the others might be added. And after, my recent visit at Bastile [sic]- I am more settled in the policy of first getting material freedom- the ballot- and after that hunt drunkards, prostitutes, religious bigots, marital outcasts, etc. etc. Miss Willard has written up some for a some paper a [small?] good bye. She and you and all other women must do and say first what seemeth wisest- as I must- be left free to not say or do what seemeth not best. Lovingly yours Susan B. Anthony"

The letter described above, added to the collection in 2015 reads: My Dear Miss Lathrop yesterday - my stengrapher - brought me the little boook- Juliana Horatia Ewing - and the flyleaf inscription gave me both your name & the date of my visit in your & your mothers - & Miss Mullingan's lovely home Nov 25, 1892 - It was a visit always remembered with pleasure - And the little Italian silk sofa blanket - has ever since hung on the back of the sofa-bed in my study - & many & many a time been my cover - when lounging. 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"
