Croydon WSPU press cuttings

Scope and Content

Previously held in an exercise book with 'Press Cuttings 1911' written on the front by Gliddon.

The newspaper cuttings relate to the activities of the Croydon WSPU, and include articles and reports of meetings. Most appear to be from Croydon local newspapers; most are undated. The file includes a report of a speech by the wife of a former New Zealand Premier on her country's experience of women's suffrage, and newspaper photographs of three officers of the Croydon WSPU, Mrs Cameron-Swain, Miss Leslie Hall, and Miss Grace Hardy. The word 'Katie', written by Gliddon on many of the pages beside unsigned articles, appears to mean that she was the author.
