New York Heritage Digital Suffrage Collection Available for Viewing

New York Heritage, together with seven members in the New York State Library Network, including the Long Island Library Resources Council, has developed a collaborative project illustrating the history of the woman suffrage movement that is now available for viewing. They have amassed and digitized a fascinating collection of photographs, posters, pamphlets, postcards, letters and memorabilia illustrating the movement from 1776 to the present day. There is also information about the anti-suffrage movement, and the sometimes under-valued contribution of men to the suffrage cause.

New York Heritage is a research portal for students, educators, historians, genealogists, and anyone else who is interested in learning more about the people, places and institutions of New York State.
