Historical Records Survey 314 E. Main St., Richmond, Virginia November 25/36 Mrs. R. M. Crawford:- In 1926 the Equal Suffrage League of Virginia presented to the State of Virginia all of its remaining banners and flags and these are now on display in the Capitol as articles of historic interest. Now we have the opportunity through the Historical Records Survey, a WPA project, of collecting and classifying for permanent preservation all available materials on woman suffrage in our State so that later a history of the movement an be written. We feel sure that you will contribute any items of interest or any data you may have or can get in connection with the work done for suffrage in James City County. We are particularly anxious 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 other words we want ANY items or information that will help to make as complete a history of the suffrage movement in Virginia as it is possible to make. Other names we have listed in James City County are Mrs. J. B. McCoy, Mrs. J. A. Babcock, Mrs. C. F. Ayres, Miss Nannie Davis, Mrs. L. S. Foster, Mrs. M. C. Hansford, Miss Edith Smith, Mrs. J. W. Ritchie, mrs. James S. Wilson, Mrs. C. E. Friend, and Miss Bessie P. Taylor. It may be that these names will help you recall others who can give information regarding the work for Suffrage in your vicinity. The Toano League was formed October 29, 1914 with 21 members. ---you as the president. With the best of good wishes, and trusting you will give us all the aid possible in making our "Archives" full and explicit, Sincerely yours, Miss Ida M. Thompson, Research Worker, Historical Records Survey. Dr. Lester J. Cappon, State Director.
