Splits in suffrage movement didn’t deter working relationships

Mrs. Raymond Brown took over after Harriett May Mills as president of New York’s state suffrage organization. A rare recording of Mrs. Brown speaking is a valuable look at the period, as well as a reference in one of Grandmother Edna Kearns’ newspaper columns that she wasn’t all that pleased with Mrs. Brown being selected as state president. Despite her personal opinion, Kearns and Brown worked closely together on suffrage organizing of Long Island. Photo: Library of Congress.

  1. I wish I could link this to facebook. It has so much relevance for the Occupy movement, that is letting petty divisions get in the way of the needed focus of our energies.

  2. I just stumbled upon your blog and wish to say that I really enjoyed browsing your posts. I’ll be subscribing to your feed.

  3. Coalitions and coalition building are what’s necessary now, just as much as it was back then.

  4. I like your blog because of the surprising and very original material.
