1836-1985 (MC 733
Edna Lamprey Stantial was secretary of the Boston Equal Suffrage Association for Good
Government and archivist of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. As Maud
Wood Park's close friend and secretary, Stantial helped Park gather the papers that
Park gave to Radcliffe College in 1943. These papers, the Woman's Rights Collection,
formed the nucleus of the Women's Archives, later the Schlesinger Library. Throughout
the 1950s, Stantial continued to collect, sort, and "catalog" papers that she added
to the Woman's Rights Collection, and others that she donated to the library. She
also organized Park's personal papers, which she gave to the Library of Congress in
the 1970s, and edited Park's Front Door Lobby. Park lived with Stantial and her husband Guy immediately before Park's death in
1955. Ironically, although she was responsible for saving numerous suffragists' manuscript
collections, little biographical information is available about Stantial in this collection
This portion of the Mary Earhart Dillon Collection consists of printed duplicates
and typescript copies of documents from the Woman's Rights Collection, made for Dillon
by Edna Lamprey Stanital. Most folders begin with "introductory" or "supplementary"
notes by Maud Wood Park, Belle Sherwin, and/or others. These notes contain background
information about the folder's subject. Park compiled the supplementary notes "to
humanize the factual record." The typescript copies of articles, reports, correspondence,
and flyers, the printed leaflets and articles, and the photographs document suffrage
and suffragists, and the legislative and other work done by organizations founded
by former suffragists.
The folders are arranged alphabetically, most by individual or organizational name,
some by topic.
