PAST EVENTS, 2010-2012

1912 Women’s Vote Postcard Mystery

In late December 2012 one of our board members purchased this 1912 Oregon suffrage postcard for the Century of Action collection. The image on the postcard front is unknown to any of us, and we would love to know who Hattie, the author of the message was, as well as her sister Mrs. C.M. McKay.

If you can provide any historical background on the postcard, the union shop that printed the card, or the women who wrote and received the message on the back please contact Janice Dilg at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
