The year 1995 marked the 75th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment to the Constitution allowing all women the right to vote. In recognition of this historical event, the staff of the University Archives and Manuscripts Department is proud to make available this guide which identifies for researchers the many historically valuable collections in the holdings that document the lives and activities of women and women's organizations from 1863 through 1995.
University Archives and Manuscripts acquires various forms of university records transferred from offices, organizations, and employees on campus. Also, the department acquires personal papers, photographs, scrapbooks, and related material, from individuals, organizations, and companies not officially associated with KSU to support the research activities of the institution. Both the university records and the personal manuscript collections contain impressive holdings that have been created and collected by women. They document the important role women have played in the history of the university, as well as in the state, region, and nation.
This guide is one in a series of descriptive guides, registers, inventories, flyers, and information circulars produced by the University Archives and Manuscripts Department, in paper and/or on the World Wide Web. We respectfully stipulate that no part of this guide may be reproduced in any form or incorporated into any information retrieval system without written permission of the University Archivist of Kansas State University.Anthony R.
