1918 Suffrage Interview Notebook, Records of Gov. M. Jodi Rell’s administration among State Archives accessions for third quarter of FY2011 Friday, April 1, 2011

Posted by pbaran in New Resources @ CSL.

The State Archives took in 32 accessions during the period covering January 1 – March 31, 2011.

On March 23, 2011, the League of Women Voters of Connecticut donated a notebook containing a record of suffrage interviews to the Connecticut State Library at a ceremony held in Memorial Hall of the Museum of Connecticut History. The notebook, kept by Gladys Bragdon, contains handwritten entries of approximately 129 men recording their views on suffrage and support for a federal amendment in 1918. CSL will be digitizing the notebook and making it available online. The ceremony can be viewed at http://ct-n.com/ondemand.asp?ID=6388
