INV-25869 [WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE] “The ‘Three Immediate Women Friends’ of the Anthony Family,” Anti-Women’s Suffrage Broadsheet, ca. 1919. Printed by Brown Printing Co., Montgomery, [Alabama]. 3 pp., 8⅞ x 11˝ in. 1919-01-01

This southern broadsheet opposes women’s suffrage because of its association with racial egalitarianism and anti-Christian views. It includes photographs of Susan B. Anthony’s “Three Immediate Women Friends”—Carrie Chapman Catt, the President of the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA); Rev. Anna Howard Shaw, a female Methodist minister who preceded Catt as the President of NAWSA; and Mrs. R. Jerome Jeffrey, a black resident of Rochester, who was frequently a guest at Anthony’s home. It also includes two controversial quotations by Catt and Anthony. Catt said, “Suffrage Democracy Knows no Bias of Race, Color, Creed or Sex.” In volume 2 of their History of Woman Suffrage, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony quoted the a May 1864 report of the Executive Committee of the Loyal Women’s National League, on which they both served: “Look not to Greece or Rome for heroes, nor to Jerusalem or Mecca for saints, but for the highest virtues of heroism, let us WORSHIP the black man at our feet.”[1]

The second and third pages are a reprint of an article entitled “Some Strange History” by James Callaway, first published in the Macon Daily Telegraph (Georgia) of May 26, 1918.
