    New Digital Collection: Carrie Chapman Catt Papers

    LOC Manuscript Division Adventurer

      The Manuscript Division of the Library of Congress has released the digital edition of the Carrie Chapman Catt Papers. The collection consists of approximately 9,500 items (11,851 images), most of which were digitized from 18 microfilm reels. Included are diaries, correspondence, speeches and articles, subject files, and miscellaneous items, including photographs and printed matter. The collection reflects Catt's steadfast dedication to two major ideals--the rights of women, particularly the right to vote, and world peace. Like the vast majority of collections that the Manuscript Division has put online in recent years, the loc.gov/collections presentation includes links from each digital item to its location in the collection’s EAD finding aid to provide users with the archival context of the materials (and back from the finding aid to the online presentation of digitized content).
