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.
