Lucy B. Johnston to County Presidents of the Kansas Equal Suffrage Association
Creator: Johnston, Lucy Browne, 1846-1937
Date: 1911
Lucy Johnston, President of the Kansas Equal Suffrage Association, wrote this letter to all the county presidents of this organization, explaining the three elements of their campaign for women's suffrage: membership extension, education, and press releases. The letter describes each of these actions and provides the names of the women in charge of each action. Johnston particularly emphasizes the importance of membership, stating that in California, house-to-house canvassing with membership cards played a major role in that state's acceptance of women's suffrage.

The end of the article also lists the names of Kansas men who supported women's suffrage; the names include such noteworthy citizens as George W. Martin and Samuel Crumbine. The petiton of the Good Government Club was unsuccessful. Women in Kansas did not gain the right to vote in national elections until 1912.

To Kansas suffragists!

To Kansas suffragists!
Creator: Amendment Campaign Committee
Date: 1894
This leaflet outlines the work that Kansas suffragists must undertake to win the vote in November 1894. Kansas women were encouraged to donate money and their time to this cause. Women were needed to form suffrage associations or to increase enrollment of those already in existence, to work with their county conventions and draft a suffrage resolution, to speak with members of the press, and to promote suffrage at Farmer's Alliance meetings or other functions (such as those of the Women's Christian Temperance Union). Although this 1894 suffrage amendment failed, Kansas women continued to employ these techniques in other suffrage campaigns, including the successful campaign of 1912.
