WORKS PROGRESS ADMINISTRATION OF VIRGINIA Historical Records Survey, 314 E. Main St., Richmond, Virginia. November 11, 1936.

Mrs. Aubrey Strode, Amherst, Virginia.

My dear Mrs. Strode:-

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 of compiling a history of the work done for woman suffrage in our State for the historical archives and we feel sure that you will be glad to contribute any items of interest or any data you may have or can get in connection with the work done for suffrage in Amherst.

We are particularly desirous of getting Minutes, samples of pamphlets or fliers or other printed matter, historical items of interest that workers may remember. Stories in regard to certain meetings or mention of outstanding speakers will not come amiss. In other words we want any items or information that will help us make as complete a history of the suffrage movement in Virginia as it is possible to make.

Other names on our Amherst list are Miss Sarah Robertson, Vice-Pres., and Mrs. Thomas Whitehead, Secretary. It may be that these will help you to recall others who can give information regarding the work in Amherst.

With the bets of good wishes and trusting that 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. Nov. 13th - 1936

Dr. Lester J. Cappon, State Director.
