: Photograph showing Susan B. Anthony posed for a portrait with a book. Anthony (1820-1906) was a nationally-known advocate for women's suffrage, and along with Elizabeth Cady Stanton, published newspaper "The Revolution" and founded the New York Women's State Temperance Society, Women's Loyal National American Equal Rights Association, and the National Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA).
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.
