File: Miss Newcomb

Scope and Content

Correspondence between Harriet Newcomb, Honorary Secretary of the British Dominions Woman Suffrage Union (later the British Dominions Women Citizens' Union) and the I.W.S.A. Headquarters Secretary and her assistants.

For a while Harriet Newcomb had the use of an office at the I.W.S.A. Headquarters and some of the letters relate simply to the forwarding of mail. A large proportion of correspondence relates to new subscribers to Jus Suffragii in Britain and the Dominions and to meetings of the British Dominions Woman Suffrage Union but there is also some exchange of information about the progress of emancipation in New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and Canada, with the occasional reference to India and Jamaica.

Includes a programme for the Girl and Boy Welfare Conference, Perth, Australia, November 1919.
