U.S.A. News Cuttings

Scope and Content

Unmounted American news cuttings sent from Ida Husted Harper of the L.W.S.C. to Mary Sheepshanks of the I.W.S.A. The cuttings appear to be those which were rejected by Ida Husted Harper, as being duplicates, when she was compiling her scrapbooks and some of them have manuscript annotations made by her. A lot of the cuttings are incomplete and a lot are undated or only partially dated.

The principal subjects are women's suffrage and the 1918 presidential elections. Also included is a letter to Mary Sheepshanks from Miss I.B. O'Mally, Editor of The Common Cause, who had apparently borrowed the collection.
