    Jane Addams, Nobel Peace Winner and Women's Suffragist Archive of Letters and Pamphlet. Includes:
    Autograph Letter Signed "Jane Addams", one page, 8.5" x 11", on Women's International League for Peace and Freedom letterhead, Chicago, May 6, 1926, to Mrs. Leach. In the letter Ms Addams thanks Mrs. Leach for her "generous check". The letter is modestly chipped on the right edge, else it is in fine condition.
    Typed Letter Signed "Jane Addams", one page, on Hull-House letterhead, 5.5" x 8.5", Chicago, April 28, 1908, to Mrs. R. H. Rice, Alliance, Ohio. It reads: "The attempt to secure municipal suffrage for women received a tie vote in the charter convention, whereupon the chairman voted against it. The matter was again brought up in the Legislature and lost by one vote. The whole charter, however, was afterwards rejected by the people so we may have another opportunity." Fine condition.
    Typed Letter Signed "Jane Addams", one page, on Hull-House letterhead, 5.5" x 7.25", Chicago, June 29, 1910, to Louis R. Ehrich, New York. She writes in part: "I am a Free Trader by conviction, but do not believe I have enough enthusiasm to be of any value in such a position [Vice President of the Free Trade League], and am therefore obliged to decline the proposed honor." Fine condition.
    Typed Letter Signed "Jane Addams", one page, on Hull-House letterhead, 5.5" x 5", Chicago, February 3, 1920, to Mr. Hervier. She writes in part: "In general I should say that there was a widespread indifference on the part of both men and women to the question of civil liberties. I believe, however, that the tide is turning slowly." Fine.
    A small printed three-page pamphlet, 3.25" x 6.25", titled "The Propaganda Section of the Chicago Political Equality League 1911-1912 "Votes for Women"". Small portion of lower front page missing, else fine. From the Judith Kaplan Women's History Collection.
