Title

Hortense Hubbard, Class of 1917, Letter to her parents, April 25, 1915

Description

Although she was unwilling to align herself with the suffragist cause, Hortense wrote home about Suffrage Day, which took place on April 24. She describes the event: “after chapel a girl dressed in white beat a drum and there were all sorts of signs around about suffrage. By the lawn between the Library and Mary Lyon chapel they had a table where they distributed papers and tried to get people to join the society up here.” She describes several events she did not participate in, including buying a flower from Jeannette Marks and her dog. By the fall, Hortense seems to have made up her mind. On October 10th, she writes home about a suffrage parade: “I don’t want to march. I guess I am an Anti anyway.”
