    New Online:  Anna E. Dickinson papers from the Library of Congress

    LOC Manuscript Division Scout

      The Manuscript Division has recently released the Anna E Dickinson papers (https://www.loc.gov/collections/anna-e-dickinson-papers/about-this-collection/), documenting the life and career of the 19th century lecturer, reformer, actress, and author. Particularly striking are the accounts of her experience at the Danville Insane Asylum provided through newspaper coverage of  the resulting court cases (e.g. https://www.loc.gov/resource/mss18424a.02903/?sp=18).
