Title

Republican Convention Flyer, 1900

Description

From 1860 to the passing of the 19th Amendment in 1920, Mount Holyoke students held elaborate mock campaigns and elections on campus. This included mock state conventions where they dressed as male candidates, gave speeches, sang political songs, and voted for representatives from their residence halls to go to the “national election.” This flyer from Mount Holyoke’s Republican State Committee was an invitation to voters to attend the state convention in 1900. This object demonstrates that even two decades before the 19th amendment was passed, Mount Holyoke students were politically active to the best of their ability.
