About the Exhibit

In 1995, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the passage of the nineteenth amendment giving women the vote, the department of Rare Books and Special Collections mounted an exhibition of letters, books, photographs and ephemera.

Mary M. Huth, Assistant Head of Rare Books and Special Collections until her retirement in 2010, curated the physical exhibition. Sometime in 1996 (we believe) the exhibition went online, on the very-new World Wide Web. It can be seen here in a webcapture created in January 1997, by a then-very-new Internet Archive Wayback Machine.

The River Campus Libraries is pleased to re-present our "founding online exhibition" in a new, expanded manner, with high resolution scans of the objects and letters.

Unless otherwise noted, all the materials are from the Department's collections. Permission to publish the images should be obtained from the Department.
