In This Issue

In this final issue of 2007 we are publishing one new document project, an update to an existing project, and our normal array of reviews and news from the archives. The new project, authored by Sylvia Hoffert, examines the funding of the National Woman's Party in the period 1913-1940, revealing the price the party paid for its extreme dependence on Alva Belmont for a large share of its financial support. We follow with a major update of our longstanding project on the 1977 Houston National Woman's Conference to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the event. We are publishing audio files of a 42-cassette collection of speeches made at that conference, totaling more than 40 hours of speeches and conference proceedings. In addition, we are publishing an array of documents from the conference that have been provided by Professor Mary Rothschild, a participant.

This issue also includes four book reviews, a website review, and our regular feature, News from the Archives. This section provides news about collections and projects of interest from archives and repositories. If you are affiliated with an archive or repository and would like to submit an announcement that you feel would be of interest to our readers, please contact the editor of the new section, Tanya Zanish-Belcher, Associate Professor and Head of the Special Collections Department and University Archives at Iowa State University.

The full-text sources in this issue mark our first reprinting of publications of the League of Women Voters, 1920-2000. We are grateful to the National LWV and many state and local branches for granting us permission to publish these materials online. Over the next two years we expect to publish about 8,000 pages of publications from the founding of the League in 1920 until 2000. The League was the successor to the National American Woman Suffrage Association after the ratification of woman suffrage and the leading women's political organization across much of the twentieth century. League publications are often difficult to identify and access and the publication of a substantial selection of these materials in our full-text sources section over the next two years should make a contribution to teaching and research in twentieth-century U.S. Women's History.
