'Question of Woman Suffrage' pamphlet
Description: Article titled "The Question of Woman Suffrage as it Seems to Me" by Harriet Keeler. Keeler, a graduate of Oberlin College and Western Reserve University, worked for Cleveland Public Schools for over 40 years, as supervisor of primary schools, assistant principal of Central High School, and finally as superintendent of schools. This item comes from the Frances Jennings Casement Papers, a manuscript collection comprised of letters and association records related to the founding and leadership of the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association. Casement (1840-1928) was born in Painesville, Ohio, and graduated from Painesville Academy and Willoughby Female Seminary. Her father, Charles Casement, supported abolition and women's suffrage and encouraged Frances to be active in social causes. Frances Casement established the Painesville Equal Rights Association in 1883, and shortly after became involved in the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association, serving as its president from 1885 to 1888.
