1 Title:   Lucy Hargrett Draper British and American women's history collection  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Draper, Lucy Hargrett  
  Dates:   1840-1998  
  Contents:  
The Lucy Hargrett Draper Center and Archives for the Study of the Rights of Women in History and Law is comprised of primary and secondary materials in a variety of formats with an emphasis on documenting women's rights, especially the United States and British Women's Suffrage Movements (1840-1920). The focus of the collection is on leading figures such as Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, Carrie Chapman Catt, Julia Ward Howe, Mary Livermore, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone, Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughter Sylvia, including correspondence and photographs. Other materials relate to the suffrage movement in the United States, such as postcards, photographs, government documents and periodicals, record activities at the state, regional, and national levels, both for and against suffrage. In addition, supporting materials recognize some of the leaders of the abolition movement, including Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, and Sojourner Truth, each of whom spoke up on behalf of women's rights as well as against slavery. Moreover, to place the suffrage materials in historical context the collection also includes pre-suffrage treatise on women's rights and legal documents dating to the 16th century as well as materials related to post-suffrage efforts (1921-2000) to pass the ERA, the formation of N.O.W., the women's liberation movement, and the Pro-Choice movement.
