Using Women's History Sources in the Archives at the Library of Virginia

Organization Records

Organization records include those of women’s clubs, memorial societies, and hereditary organizations. In Richmond, women organized the Equal Suffrage League in 1909; a rich collection of the league’s correspondence, minutes, and broadsides was deposited at the Library of Virginia in 1942 by its secretary, Ida Mae Thompson. Papers and records of the League of Women Voters are also part of the Library’s collection, as are the papers of the Virginia Equal Rights Ratification Council.
