Creator: Train, George Francis, 1829-1904
Date: 1867
This pamphlet contains excerpts from and/or newspaper accounts of thirty speeches that George Francis Train, a supporter of women's rights, gave in Kansas over a two week period in October and November of 1867. Train came to Kansas after participating in an excursion to the Rocky Mountains with approximately 200 newspapermen to hunt buffalo. Numerous Kansas women's suffrage supporters are mentioned in the booklet. Train gave speeches in Leavenworth, Lawrence, Olathe, Paola, Ottawa, Mound City, Fort Scott, LeRoy, Humboldt, Burlington, Emporia, Junction City, Topeka, Atchison, Wyandotte, and possibly other communities.

Kansas Suffrage Reveille: organ of the Kansas Equal Suffrage Association

Kansas Suffrage Reveille: organ of the Kansas Equal Suffrage Association
Creator: Kansas Equal Suffrage Association (1884-1913)
Date: March 1896-November 1900
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. This collection includes fifty-three of the fifty-five issues published. Two issues [Vol. 2 No. 9 (December) 1897 and Vol. 3 No. 1 (January) 1898] are missing. 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.

Woman Suffrage history collection

Woman Suffrage history collection
Date: 1867-1911
The manuscripts in this collection originally came from a variety of different sources and were brought together into one collection because of their subject matter. For any researcher or scholar of the woman suffrage movement, this collection offers a great deal of primary sources. Though these papers are relatively few, they do involve many people prominent in the suffrage movement; such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott and others. Also, there are organizational records of some of the better-known suffrage organizations: the American Equal Rights Association, the Kansas Equal Rights Association, and the Woman Suffrage Association. This collection is divided into fourteen different series and is arranged mostly in a chronological order. Each series in this collection is marked with a microfilm target to indicate the beginning of the series. Used in conjunction with this finding aid, locating a series on this microfilm roll becomes more convenient. This manuscript collection was microfilmed and then digitized in order to preserve the original papers to protect them from being handled by patrons, and to provide for greater security. Also, being digitized, this collection becomes accessible to a wider range of people.
