    Woman's Suffrage: Woman's Ballot Box. Woman's right to vote came came slowly and conditionally. More often than not, they were restricted to voting only on issues men felt they had a vested interest in, such as the education of their children, and then were made to use separate ballots and ballot boxes. This example was made by Geo. D. Barnard & Co., a manufacturer of office fixtures and equipment, in St. Louis, Mo. A tin, barrel form in black japanned finish with stenciled gold lettering, sunbursts, and bands. The slotted, cast iron lid is fitted with a latch and wire bale handle. Measures 14.25" wide x 12.25" high x 12.5" deep. Some denting in the rims, else fine condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
