3934 Historical Records Survey 314 East Main Street, Richmond, Virginia February 19,1937 Mrs. Fred. Hunter, King George, Virginia. Dear Mrs. Hunter:- You may recall that several weeks ago we sent you a letter regarding the preservation of any records still extant of the Equal Suffrage League of Virginia. We have an opportunity through the Historical Records Survey, a WPA Project, to collect and classify for permanent preservation all available materials on woman suffrage in our state, so that later a history of the movement can be written. We feel sure you will contribute any items of interest or any data you may have or can get, regarding work done for suffrage in your locality. We especially desire to get minutes, samples of pamphlets or fliers, or other printed matter including newspaper clippings, or information that workers may remember, etc. Short stories of certain meetings or mention of outstanding speakers will not come amiss. In fact we want any data that will help to make a complete history of the suffrage movement in Virginia. My we remind you of this project and ask your co-operation? Trusting you will aid us in making our archives as complete as possible. Sincerely yours, Ida M. Thompson (Miss) Ida M. Thompson, Senior Clerk Historical Records Survey Dr. Lester J. Cappon, State Director
