Abzuga (Zu) Adams diary

Adams, Abzuga (Zu), 1859-1911

This is the fourth diary in Abzuga (Zu) Adams' papers from November 19, 1908 to October 9, 1910. It contains family, domestic and work news with several entries about building the Memorial building in Topeka, Kansas. Zu Adams was born in Atchison, Kansas, in 1859, and named after for her father?s mother who also went by the nickname Zu. As a child, she lived in various Kansas towns including Waterville, Wichita, and Topeka. In 1876, when Zu was seventeen, her father became Secretary of the Kansas Historical Society where she worked as his unpaid assistant. Later she was given a salary and the title of librarian. At the time of her father?s death in 1899, Zu and her late Father had hoped she would succeed him as secretary but when George Martin emerged as a candidate, Zu withdrew her candidacy. She worked as Martin?s assistant until her death in 1911. From her experience as a secretary, the diary contains sections of short hand unique to Zu and are left to interpretation by the reader. Zu never married, remaining in the family home and raising her younger brothers and sisters and Helen who she adopted in 1896.

Rose Cecil O' Neill

F. De Maria & Co. N.Y.

This postcard shows suffragist Rose Cecil O' Neill, to the left, and her sister Callista O' Neill promoting the Nineteenth Amendment to grant women the right to vote in the Untied States. A professional illustrator and writer by trade, Rose also became the first female cartoonist in the United States. The comic strip consisted of a baby with a round face and body known as "Kewpie." Her illustrations appeared in a number of magazines from Ladies Home Journal to Good Housekeeping. The success from this character also helped Rose to use "Kewpie" as a champion for women's right to vote. She drew posters and cartoons showing the cupid babies wearing suffrage sashes and marching in parades. After the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified on August 18, 1920, Rose continued to use her art to advocated for women's causes.

The Last Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstrous Regiment of Women

Gordon, Robert (Reverend)

Rev. Robert Gordon apparently was the pastor at the First Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas. This leaflet was written in response to efforts to defeat the constitutional amendment that would give Kansas women full suffrage in 1912. Gordon is a supporter of woman's suffrage and attempts to respond to arguments of those opposed to the amendment. Gordon states that "this organized, highly-financed, eleventh-hour assault is not inspired by honest conviction. It is a desperate effort born of a craven fear of good women on the part of men who know what women will do . . . ."
