The Elmira College women’s rights and suffrage collection is an aggregate of records from the Elmira College Archives. Typical records from the collection include campus publications (Daily Evening Lepidotus, Sibyl, EC Weekly, and the Alumni Bulletin), photographs, student letters, student scrapbooks and addresses made by college officials. The collection documents the student, faculty and institutional role in the women’s rights movement from the inaugural speech of the College’s first President, Augustus Cowles, to the mounting suffrage efforts of the early 1900’s, until the passage of the amendment to the New York State Constitution granting women the right to vote in 1917.
