Description

    Important Large Original 1896 Photograph of Susan B. Anthony with Woman's Rights Leaders measuring 9.5" x 7.75" (13.5" x 11" on original mount). It was taken on the front porch of the family homestead in Adams, Massachusetts. Susan B. Anthony, the "Dowager Empress" of the early woman's rights movement, is seated at the center. Around her:

    Laura Clay, daughter of famed anti-slavery activist Cassius M. Clay, and co-founder in 1888 of the Kentucky Equal Rights Association.
    Anna Howard Shaw, the first female Methodist minister in the United States, a close confidant of Anthony, head of the National Woman Suffrage Association from 1904 to 1915, and later a leader of the Women's Christian Temperance Union.
    Alice Stone Blackwell, noted suffragist, editor of the leading woman's rights newspaper, the Woman's Journal, and recording secretary of the National Woman Suffrage Association, 1890-1918.
    Annie Kennedy Bidwell, wealthy supporter of woman's and temperance causes, and wife of the 1892 Prohibition candidate.
    Carrie Chapman Catt, one of the principal suffragists along with Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and chairperson of the National Association, 1895-1900.
    Ida A. Husted Harper, journalist and considered the unofficial "historian" of the woman's suffrage movement. One of its leading pamphleteers, and author of the authorized 3-volume biography of Anthony.
    Rachel Foster Avery, corresponding secretary of the National American Woman Suffrage Association during the 1890s.

    Also believed to be pictured are Winfred Harper and Mary Hayes. In excellent condition, this historic image is certainly the finest photographic artifacts of the early woman's rights movement we have ever handled.
