The University of Rochester has acquired newly-discovered correspondence among women suffragists, including letters written by Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone and Isabella Beecher Hooker.
The New York Times reports, “The collection … includes 26 letters from Anthony, 10 from Stanton and dozens from other suffragists. There are also broadsides, pamphlets, newspaper clippings and other material” dating primarily from 1869-1880. The material is expected to help scholarship about the women’s suffrage movement at the local level.
University of Rochester has not disclosed the amount it paid for the collection.
