Abstract: Flyers, form letter to members, and invitation of the Cambridge Public School Association, an organization that encouraged women to register and vote. These records are part of the Woman's Rights Collection.
In 1915 the Cambridge (Massachusetts) Public School Association (CPSA) encouraged women to register and to vote in both the February primaries and December general election for school committee. Working with the Women's Campaign Committee, the Cambridge Public School Association endorsed a slate for the general election that included two women, Florence Lee Whitman (incumbent) and Mary H. Winslow. Both groups believed that the recently expanded school committee should include at least two women; it had previously included only one. The Women's Campaign Committee continued the drive to register women voters for school committee elections the following year.
