The Library of Congress's Rare Book & Special Collections Division is pleased to 
announce the release of a new digital collection, "Miller NAWSA Suffrage 
Scrapbooks, 1897-1911: From the collection of Elizabeth Smith Miller and Anne 
Fitzhugh Miller": 

           Collection handle: 

Between 1897 and 1911 Elizabeth Smith Miller and her daughter, Anne Fitzhugh 
Miller, filled seven large scrapbooks with ephemera and memorabilia related to 
their work with women's suffrage. The Elizabeth Smith Miller and Anne Fitzhugh 
Miller scrapbooks are a part of the National American Woman Suffrage Association 
(NAWSA) Collection in the Rare Book and Special Collections Division of the Library 
of Congress. These scrapbooks document the activities of the Geneva Political 
Equality Club, which the Millers founded in 1897, as well as efforts at the state, 
national, and international levels to win the vote for women. They offer a unique 
look at the political and social atmosphere of the time, as well as chronicle the 
efforts of two women who were major participants in the suffrage movement.

Smith Miller and Anne Fitzhugh Miller" compliments other women's history

of Protest: Photographs from the Records of the National Woman's Party" < >.
