Radcliffe College Suffrage

Archival Materials

Radcliffe archival collections consist of both alumnae papers as well as the official records of Radcliffe College.  Specific suffrage and anti-suffrage material within each of the below collections was selected by Schlesinger staff for digitization. The material relates to activity at the college; activity in the greater Cambridge-Boston area or activity of Radcliffe alumnae.

Each collection name is followed by its call number and is linked to its HOLLIS catalog record.  Where available digital content from the collection can be accessed by clicking on the link under each entry. Content that was digitized in-house by Schlesinger staff is identified by front matter once you open the PDF. Content digitized by Harvard Imaging Service will open to the Harvard Mirador Viewer.

The entirety of the collection may offer greater context on the subject. We encourage anyone interested in viewing larger portions or entire collections to contact us with any questions.
