Title: The Assistant Industrial Agent in Johnson City, Tennessee to the S & F Manufacturing Company in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania
Attributed name : Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway
Associated name : S & F Manufacturing Company
Date Created: 1913-03-07
Abstract: This letter was written by the Assistant Industrial Agent in Johnson City, Tennessee, to the S & F Manufacturing Company in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania. Apparently, women employees were dissatisfied and went on strike. The purpose of the letter was to generate interest for S & F Manufacturing Company to move its business to Johnson City because the territory was almost unlimited and the mountain girls worked longer hours per day for less pay and would not be an embarrassment to the Company.

Title: The Truth about the Negro Problem
Creator : Southern Women`s League for the Rejection of the Susan B. Anthony Amendment
Date Created: 1920-08
Abstract: This broadside, published by anti-suffrage forces in Nashville during the struggle for the ratification of the 19th Amendment, details racial reasons for their opposition to women`s suffrage. It claims that women`s suffrage must be defeated for the sake of Southern civilization, womanhood, and both the white and black races. It lauds the racial harmony of the South, and warns that giving women the right to vote will only spark political competition between the sexes and between the races. There is a detailed accounting of the population of southern states, broken down by race and sex, showing a white majority in all states except South Carolina and Mississippi. An enumerated list of facts purports that the 19th Amendment will create a Negro majority in South Carolina and Mississippi, where no such "real majority" exists now. The amendment will also create a Negro majority in over 200 counties in the South.

Title: Ward-Belmont College Dress Regulations
Creator : Ward-Belmont College
Date Created: 1928
Abstract: This four-page pamphlet details the dress regulation of Ward-Belmont College in 1928. "Extravagance and extremes in dress are wholly out of harmony with our spirit and ideas. . . We eliminate rouge, lipsticks, unduly short skirts, and high heels with a marked degree of success, and ask for your approval of our effort to keep our girls naturally normal." The regulation dress consisted of a tailored suit or dress and coat, with hat, waist, gloves and shoes. The pamphlet outlines the colors and styles permitted, gives advice on when and where to purchase the clothing, and explains the expectation for dress both at school and for social functions.

Author : Southern Women`s League for the Rejection of the Susan B. Anthony Amendment
Author : National Association Opposed to Woman Suffrage

It emphatically refutes any connection to or payment from liquor interests, and claims that Susan B. Anthony herself had appealed to the United States Brewers` Association. The message threatens legal action against libel or slander, and lists the names of Judge John R. Tyson and Hon. Everett P. Wheeler as the general counsel to the Southern Women`s League for the Rejection of the Susan B. Anthony Amendment and the National Association Opposed to Woman Suffrage, respectively.

Title: Woman`s Protest Against Woman Suffrage
Author : Tennessee Anti-Suffrage Association
Date Created: 1920-06 - 1920-08
Abstract: This typed petition, stamped by the Tennessee Anti-Suffrage Association, enumerates the reasons for their opposition to women`s suffrage. Stating their resentment at having "Votes for Women" thrust upon them, they declare that the vote will draw women into the evil of politics and degrade their sex. They believe that women cannot effect any reform without the approval of men, and trust their fathers, brothers and sons to act in their best interest. They also claim that women are better protected in states without woman suffrage, and that giving women the franchise would increase taxation.
