Items in New York Heritage are organized into collections, which provide additional context for understanding their significance and meaning.
The photographic work of Washington G. Smith (1828-1893) and Arthur J. Telfer (1859-1954) documents life in Otsego County, New York, for almost a century.
The Skaneateles Lake Collection documents various locations around the Finger Lake, illuminating the lake's significance to health practice, recreation, and the environment.
The Syracuse Central High School collection contains class photographs and diplomas from the late-19th century to mid-20th century.
The suffrage documents are a hidden collection within the New York State Federation of Women’s Clubs records. The suffrage documents, though limited, demonstrate the complexity of the suffrage issue and contain reports of the anti-suffrage and suffrage committees, an address in opposition of women’s suffrage, a Club resolution to endorse women’s suffrage, and a resignation letter and response concerning the Club’s perceived support of the suffrage issue. This collection offers a varied perspective that surrounded the suffrage question in the early 20th Century.
