Alice Stone Blackwell: Miscellany

  • 100% Completed
In 1890, second-generation suffragist Alice Stone Blackwell helped to broker a merger of the two major national women’s suffrage organizations, one of which was founded by her parents, Lucy Stone and Henry Browne Blackwell. The two organizations put aside their differences to become the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA). Alice took up the family business of suffrage becoming the recording secretary for NAWSA and eventually the editor of NAWSA’s weekly newspaper, the Woman’s Journal, which her parents began in 1870.

This group of Alice Stone Blackwell’s documents include an address book; book reviews of her book about her mother, "Lucy Stone, Pioneer of Woman's Rights," published in 1930; broadcast scripts; notes; statements; tributes; medical reports; photographs; scrapbooks, and printed matter. Also included are some of Blackwell’s class notes from her school days and greeting cards that she received in the 1950s.
