In This Issue

In this second issue of 2008 we are publishing a two-part document project. The project, co-authored by Thomas Dublin and Margaret Johnston, examines the contributions of a little-known, but creative activist, Elisabeth Freeman. Freeman supported herself as an organizer and staffperson for the suffrage, antilynching, and peace movements in the 1910s. Freeman was tireless in her dedication to these causes and brought a modern public relations sensibility to her innovative work. The materials are so extensive that we have divided this project into two parts, both of which we publish in this issue.

This issue also includes three book reviews 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 third installment of publications of the League of Women Voters, 1920-2000. We are near the halfway point in posting 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 the nineteenth amendment 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 should make a contribution to teaching and research in twentieth-century U.S. Women's History.
