Suffrage Notes include Bob Weible on history, sainthood for suffragist, and much more

“Hey, people like history. Some love it. They read books, go to history-themed movies, visit museums and historic sites, preserve buildings, research their family genealogies, participate in re-enactments, support local historical societies, and hold never-ending debates about historical subjects that matter to them. History is fun, yes, and even entertaining. But it’s more than that. A good history program educates people and makes them better citizens. It builds an appreciation for our sense of place and raises the quality of life for everyone. And it helps promote economic growth.” Bob Weible is the state historian of NY. The resources of the state library, museum and archives are available online. LINK PDF

Trolling the internet for suffrage news involves visiting a variety of online sites. I wouldn’t have expected the Catholic Church, for example, to consider sainthood for suffragist Dorothy Day who served jail time for the vote.  LINK PDF  Unlikely reference to suffrage in green building post.
