Nineteenth century women’s rights advocates used their scrapbooks as part of a strategy to manage their public image, and to shape public opinion. Along the way, they used their scrapbooks to build their careers as speakers and writers.

I hear the second volume of the full version of Dall’s diary is coming out soon from the Massachusetts Historical Society, thanks to Helen Deese’s phenomenal editing work.
