Alice Park Papers

Alice Park

This collection contains information and artifacts from the women's suffrage  movement of the late-19th and early-20th centuries. It includes correspondence between Ms. Park and national women's suffrage leaders such as Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Alice Paul, Carrie Chapman Catt and many others. We also possess an extensive collection of women's suffrage movement memorabilia, i.e. suffrage pins, suffrage silks, banners, postcards, posters, flyers, slides, dolls, etc. A major component of this archive is the Charlotte Perkins Gilman collection. The Alice Park Archives also include a complete set of Gilman's publication, The Forerunner and other first-edition copies of some of her major texts. We also have some items published by Charlotte Perkins, before she added the name Gilman by marriage. Alice Park was also active in various peace organizations and was a member of the National Organization of Pen Women - the archive contains information from these associations as well.
