Abigail Scott Duniway (1834-1915) moved to Oregon from Illinois in 1852 with her family on the Oregon Trail and kept a detailed journal of their travels. Duniway was later a key leader of the Woman's Suffrage Movement in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest, and she aided the national effort. This expansive collection contains her correspondence, published and unpublished literary works, documents pertaining to the suffrage movement, and a considerable amount of newspaper clippings reporting on Duniway's political and social work.
Collected research material from Jean M. Ward, Lewis & Clark College professor emerita of Communication, and founder of the Gender Studies program. The collection includes material relating to her work on Abigail Scott Duniway and Women in the Northwest.
