Indexed News Cuttings

Scope and Content

With the exception of a few flyers and manuscript notes, the collection consists entirely of news cuttings; these are drawn mostly from the local and national press with a few cuttings from journals of the women's suffrage movement.

Arrangement

The League filed news cuttings in a shoe box under 51 alphabetical subject headings. 49 of these headings are represented below; the 2 additional subjects were `Parallel' and `Parliament' but no clippings were filed under these headings. Within each subject file the dated news cuttings have been placed in chronological order. Cuttings which give day and month dates, but not year, and totally undated cuttings, of which there are a great many, have been placed at the end of each file, although sometimes they do, or may, relate to events in the dated cuttings.

Conditions Governing Access

Use Campaign for Women's Suffrage, start of Reel 8.

Note that the order of news cuttings on the microfilm is disturbed. The archivist, in listing the archive, has attempted to recreate original order, correcting obvious misfilings and ordering news cuttings chronologically. If it proves difficult to locate any particular pieces on the microfilm access to the originals may be arranged.
