In the library

A great collection of Women's Rights and suffrage material is at the Schlesinger Library, Radcliffe Institute, Harvard University. I went there a few weeks ago and had a nice experience. I had to keep reminding myself that this was where suffragists Inez Haynes Irwin and Maud Wood Park went to school, back when it was Radcliffe College. I was able to read Inez's diaries from the early 1900s, and her typed autobiography, as well as seeing further material online. Thanks to the librarians who helped me through the vast material they have. I am working on digesting this for use in the suffragists book.
