Information about the Collections search

The Long 19th Amendment Project’s mission is to expand the narrative of women’s suffrage and to make it widely accessible to researchers, students, and interested people everywhere. Our Collections database searches archival material related to the history of women’s citizenship and voting rights in the United States and its territories. It is a multi-repository search, pulling in metadata from suffrage and related collections located across the country.

The Collections database includes manuscript material (e.g. correspondence, diaries, memos, speeches, records of financial transactions), printed materials (e.g. pamphlets, broadsides), photographs, maps, and other primary sources useful for research. In every case, we strive to provide the maximum amount of metadata that is available at both the item and collection level. For more information about a particular item or collection, please contact the owning repository.

We are constantly working to bring new material into the Collections database. As of March 3, 2021 it includes:

Schlesinger Library
2,272 Records
Material from collections such as:

  • Papers of Susan B. Anthony
  • Papers of Inez Milholland
  • Suffrage Miscellany in the Mary Earhart Dillon Collections
  • Papers of Anna Howard Shaw in the Mary Earhart Dillon Collection
  • Papers of Matilda Joslyn Gage
  • Papers of Alice Paul

Materials from over 40 contributing repositories nationwide

We are grateful to the staff at many of these institutions and to the work of DPLA for providing access to the metadata of these rich and varied collections.
