Scrapbook History talk in Eugene, OR Nov. 13, 2018

I’m delighted to be speaking November 13, 2018 at the University of Oregon in Eugene. I hope the students I speak with will go on to dig in the archives at the university, where the university special collections and archives has scrapbooks of Oregon suffragist and journalist Abigail Scott Duniway (1834-1915).

“Writing with Scissors: The American Scrapbook in the Nineteenth Century,” will start at 4:00 pm in the Humanities Center conference room (PLC 159).

Oregon women won the vote in 1912; Abigail Scott Duniway first registered to vote a few months later. This is her first voter registration card from 1913.
