At least, that’s it for the summer! I’m finished (officially) with my internship at the Evanston Women’s History Project, and it’s been an incredible learning experience. I’m sure I’m not done working with the Frances Willard Historical Association, though, it’s an incredible organization with some awesome people.
I spent the summer knee-deep in the Union Signal and working my way through convention reports, and I’m happy to say that the digital timeline I’ve been working on, The WCTU and the 19th Amendment, is now live, up and running! Check it out, and let me know what you think in the comments!
Other final products from this summer include a webpage that isn’t live yet, but will be part of the Frances Willard Historical Association’s “Resources” and a nice, fat research report that the EWHP can use to get an exhibit going for the anniversary of the 19th Amendment in 2020.
And I’m not quite done yet! I’ve submitted a proposal for a paper to the Southern Association of Women Historians, who are hosting a conference next June. This paper would continue to explore the work of Lenna Lowe Yost and the WCTU in West Virginia and in other Southern states as they worked for suffrage. More updates about that when I have them!
And now, it’s vacation time!
