Items in New York Heritage are organized into collections, which provide additional context for understanding their significance and meaning.

A collection of reports, minutes, and scrapbooks relating to New York State chapters of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union, the bulk of which relate to the Unadilla, New York local union.
Scrapbooks containing meeting minutes, programs, brochures, newspaper clippings and photographs concerning a late 19th and early 20th century women’s suffrage organization in Ithaca, New York. Some materials reference New York State and national suffrage matters.
Photos documenting Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) activities in Staatsburg, NY, during the 1930s.
Photographs, documents, and other materials relating to the founding and history of Syracuse University College of Law.
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.
