Frances Elizabeth Willard

Frances Elizabeth Willard
Date: between 1875 and 1889
This is portrait of Frances Elizabeth Willard, 1839-1898, president of Evanston College for Ladies and dean of women at Northwestern University. After leaving the university, she helped organize the Chicago Woman's Christian Temperance Union in 1874 and became president of the National Woman's Christian Temperance Union in 1879. In 1891 she was elected president of the World's Woman's Christian Temperance Union. Willard left a solid career in education to devote herself to the temperance crusade. For many years she worked for the Temperance Union with no pay, living on money made at speaking engagements. She was instrumental in the formation of the Prohibition Party and was later elected president of the National Council of Women, largely for her belief in women's right to vote.


Frances Elizabeth Willard to Governor John Martin

Frances Elizabeth Willard to Governor John Martin
Creator: Willard, Frances Elizabeth, 1839-1898
Date: March 13, 1888
Educator and reformer Frances Elizabeth Willard of Evanston, Illinois, writes Governor John Martin of Topeka, Kansas, requesting information on the effect the woman's vote in municipal elections has had on enforcing prohibition. Miss Willard's letter follows a newly enacted Kansas law giving women equal suffrage in municipal elections (1887). Willard is specifically interested in the relation between the woman's vote and the election of effective enforcing officers. Women did not achieve full suffrage in Kansas until 1912. As this letter demonstrates, the women's suffrage issue was closely associated with prohibition. Miss Willard was president of the Woman's National Christian Temperance Union. See Mrs. G. Monroe to Governor John Martin, February 11, 1887.

This monthly paper served as the official organ of the Kansas Equal Suffrage Association (KESA). The paper began publication in March 1896 and was apparently discontinued in November 1900.

The executive committee of the KESA subsidized the publication. The paper was intended to improve communication on suffrage issues between the state organization and various local organizations. It contains information about the activities of local equal suffrage associations all over Kanas, news of elections of women to local offices, and stories about the activities of national leaders such as Susan B. Anthony (Aunt Susan) and Carrie Chapman Catt. Publication began in Eureka, Kansas, with Katie R. Addison as editor and publisher. Production of the paper moved to Leroy, Kansas, by February 1898 with Alice M. David as editor and publisher. The paper includes writings by Charlotte Perkins Stetson Gilman and reports on her activities. A complete text version of this title is being prepared but is not yet available.
