Biographical/Historical Note
Emma Biddlecom Sweet (1862-1951) was a distant cousin of Susan B. Anthony and intermittently served as her secretary from approximately 1895 to1906. She also held various executive positions in the Political Equality Club, Rochester, NY, and its successor, the Woman Suffrage Party of Monroe County, Inc. In 1896, she accompanied Susan B. Anthony to California to work on the campaign to add a suffrage amendment to the state's constitution. Here she met Carrie Chapman Catt who became a personal friend.

Scope and Content
The Emma Biddlecom Sweet Papers includes correspondence from her friend, Carrie Chapman Catt, as well as other correspondents, including Lucy E. Anthony, Mary S. Anthony, Susan B. Anthony, Mary T. L. Gannett, William Channing Gannett, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Maud Nathan, Rush Rhees, Anna Howard Shaw and Booker T. Washington. Many of the letters are in connection with a lecture series sponsored by the Political Equality Club. Other material in the collection consists of manuscript and printed records of the national and local suffrage movement and photographs. Suffrage pamphlets that were also part of the collection are now cataloged and shelved with the Department's book collection. Also found in the collection are personal legal papers, financial records, and photographs related to Emma B. Sweet, her family, and her husband Fred G. Sweet, who was an employee of the City of Rochester.
