Copying. Papers may be copied in accordance with the library's usual procedures.
Dates and/or other information have been written on some items by
a number of people. In organizing the material, the processor left
undated material that was grouped with dated items where it was. All
dates and other information added by the processor are in square
Some of the material in the collection was difficult to film due
to such problems as flimsy paper with text showing through, faded or
smudged writing, faint pencil notations, or brittle and/or torn
clippings. The film was carefully produced to insure that these items
are as legible as possible.
The film was proofread by University Publications of America.
Letters of one or more pages with either the salutation or the
signature missing, as well as portions of letters, articles, or
clippings, have been marked as fragments [frag.].
Undated items are marked "n.d." (no date) and filmed at the end
of each folder.
The pages of many items were numbered to aid the microfilmer,
proofreaders, and researchers. These numbers are in square brackets.
The reverse sides of outdated letterhead or other "scrap" paper
was sometimes used for transcriptions, drafts, or notes. These
reverse sides were filmed only if their respective letterheads were
not represented elsewhere in the collection, or if they contained
unique text. They have been filmed at the end of each folder in which
Portions of the transcribed Anna Howard Shaw/Lucy Elmina Anthony correspondence (#502-510)
were numbered for a previous Schlesinger Library microfilm. Some
pages are not in strict chronological order: those for November-
December 1901, describing Anna Howard Shaw's Caribbean trip, were filed and filmed
separately from the folder of 1901-05 correspondence.
Many loose clippings were mounted by the processor.
Many clippings from newspapers already on microfilm (according to
Newspapers in Microform, United States, Library of Congress, 1973),
were discarded after filming.
All photographs were microfilmed with the collection. They are
also available on the microfilm of the Schlesinger Library photograph

Minister, physician, lecturer, and suffragist, Anna Howard Shaw was born on February
14, 1847, in Newcastle-on-Tyne, England, the sixth of seven surviving children of
Thomas Shaw and Nicolas (Stott) Shaw. Shaw described her family's move to America
(first to Massachusetts and later to the Michigan wilderness), their hardships on
the frontier, her determination to get an education, and her career shifts from teacher
to minister to physician to social reformer in her autobiography, The Story of a Pioneer (New York: Harper and Brothers, 1915).
An avid reader, Shaw was largely self-taught before becoming a teacher at the age
of 15. She later finished high school, and entered Albion College (Michigan) in 1873
at the age of 26. In 1878 she graduated from the divinity school of Boston University,
the only woman in her class. In addition to performing various pastoral duties in
the Methodist Protestant Church, Shaw enrolled in Boston University's medical school
in 1883, graduating with an M.D. in 1886. She became increasingly convinced that the
problems she encountered in her ministry and as a physician could not be solved without
major political and social reforms, and that obtaining the vote for women was a necessary
Lecturing and organizing on behalf of the temperance and woman suffrage movements,
Shaw became one of the best-known women in the United States. Her oratorical skills
were legendary; in 1913 the National Anti- Suffrage Association forbade its members
to engage in any further debate with her.
In addition to serving as vice president (1892-1904) and president (1904-1915) of
the National American Woman Suffrage Association, Shaw was chairman of the Woman's
Committee of the U.S. Council of National Defense (1917-1919). For her extraordinary
work and success in coordinating women's contributions to the war effort she was awarded
the Distinguished Service Medal by the United States government in May 1919.
Shaw died of pneumonia on July 2, 1919, in the middle of an exhausting speaking tour
on behalf of the League to Enforce Peace, an organization formed to rally support
for Woodrow Wilson's proposed peace treaty and League of Nations. Lucy Elmina Anthony,
niece of Susan B. Anthony, was also an active suffragist. For thirty years she was
friend and secretary to Shaw; she shared a home in Moylan, Pennsylvania, with Shaw
from 1903 until the latter's death in 1919.
For additional biographical information, see The Story of A Pioneer; Notable American Women, 1607-1950 (Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press, 1971); and Wilmer A. Linkugel, "The
Speeches of Anna Howard Shaw" (Ph.D. dissertation, University of Wisconsin, 1960;
available from University Microfilms).
The series has been rearranged and now contains five subseries; though materials created
by Lucy Elmina Anthony can be found in the four Shaw subseries (A-D), the majority
of her papers are in Subseries E.
- A. Archival and biographical
- B. Diaries and appointment books
- C. Writings and speeches
- D. Correspondence
- E. Lucy Elmina Anthony correspondence
Though the Anna Howard Shaw/Lucy Elmina Anthony papers do not provide a full record
of either woman's life, they do reveal something of their personalities. Shaw's humor,
sarcasm, and unflagging devotion to the cause of woman suffrage, as well as Lucy Elmina
Anthony's fierce loyalty to the cause and to Shaw, are readily apparent.
The papers bear evidence of their extensive use by Ida Husted Harper in the preparation
of her unpublished Shaw biography, the original of which is in the Bentley Historical
Library, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; for drafts see #355-358. She heavily marked
not only her typed transcriptions, but also original documents. Annotations by Lucy
Elmina Anthony and Caroline I. Reilly are so labeled. Dates provided by Ida Husted
Harper and Lucy Elmina Anthony have been accepted by the processor, unless there was
Subseries A, Archival and biographical (#350-373v), contains correspondence of Lucy
Elmina Anthony with Mary Earhart Dillon and Nicolas Shaw Fraser re: the disposition
of the Anna Howard Shaw papers, and archival notes. The bulk of the subseries consists
of biographical papers: teaching certificates and contracts; results of medical school
examinations; programs, passes, etc.; Shaw reminiscences; notes for and drafts of
the Ida Husted Harper biography; tributes and other biographical material, both printed
and manuscript (see also #555-558); clippings, some in an extremely fragile scrapbook;
and photographs of Shaw, her friends, her house, suffrage groups, landscapes, and
the christening (1943) of the battleship SS Anna Howard Shaw.
Subseries B, Diaries and appointment books (#374v-416), contains books of both Shaw
and Lucy Elmina Anthony. Most of Shaw's diary entries (1898-1919) are brief, though
some are full pages. Many pages are blank; these have not been filmed. Diary entries
for November 1901 to February 1902 describe Shaw's travels to various countries in
and around the Caribbean, especially Cuba, Jamaica, and Venezuela. A few "diaries"
are essentially appointment books, but the processor has not changed Lucy Elmina Anthony's
original designations. While some appointment books (1889-1911) are inscribed "Anna
Howard Shaw" and others "Lucy E. Anthony," Lucy Elmina Anthony's writing appears in
both; the engagements are apparently those of Shaw. The 1900 diary and 1904 appointment
book originally received with the collection are currently missing; there were no
diaries for 1907 or 1909, and no 1908 appointment book.
Subseries C, Writings and speeches (#417-500), contains a lecture itinerary; programs
and publicity; tributes to Shaw as a speaker; press releases; and speeches, articles,
and statements. Most are suffrage speeches, though some are about temperance, World
War I, and other topics; see the inventory for a complete list. Shaw usually spoke
extemporaneously; many speeches are thus transcripts by others, and a number are printed.
The transcripts carry annotations by Shaw, Ida Husted Harper, and others. The subseries
is arranged chronologically; the inventory provides titles and locales where known.
The processor supplemented information on the documents with that provided by Wilmer
Albert Linkugel in The Speeches of Anna Howard Shaw. Some of the unidentified items in #496 may be excerpts of longer speeches.
A number of speeches have penciled numbers (e.g."#71") in the upper left-hand corner
of the first page. These refer to folders in a previous arrangement; they have been
retained to help researchers attempting to match earlier citations.
This subseries spans Shaw's oratorical career, from the rough notes for her first
sermon (1871) to a speech on lynching given two months before her death. Shaw had
a number of set themes and delivered similar speeches repeatedly over the years throughout
the U.S. and also abroad.
A few speeches and reports by others are included at the end of the subseries.
Subseries D, Correspondence (#501-541), has two major divisions: correspondence arranged
alphabetically by correspondent, and other correspondence. In addition, there is one
folder of Shaw letters to "Home Folks," written from trips abroad.
Most of the correspondents in the alphabetical section are friends; they often addressed,
and referred to, Shaw as "Ladee." The typed transcripts (prepared by Ida Husted Harper;
the originals were apparently destroyed) of Shaw's letters to Lucy Elmina Anthony
are informative and descriptive, as are her many letters to a close friend from childhood,
Clara Osburn. The Anna Howard Shaw/Lucy Elmina Anthony transcripts retain page numbers
assigned for a previous filming. There is little official NAWSA correspondence, though
fragments exist on the backs of unrelated documents (see #505). Shaw's work during
World War I with the Woman's Committee of the U.S. Council of National Defense is
documented in #513-516, and #559. The WCTU correspondence contains references to the
death of Frances Willard, as well as arrangements for Shaw speaking engagements.
The general correspondence, arranged chronologically, pertains to suffrage campaigns
and victories, or to capital punishment, and includes invitations to lecture, birthday
and get well greetings, etc. There is one folder of poems by others, most dedicated
to Shaw, and one of 70th birthday greetings.
Subseries E, Lucy E. Anthony correspondence (#542-560), is divided into two main parts:
correspondence arranged alphabetically by correspondent, and condolences, tributes,
etc., about Shaw. Most of the letters in both sections were written after Shaw's death,
and are of a personal nature.
