Seeking resources on Deaf suffragists

Perri Meldon Discussion

Hello, my name is Perri Meldon, and I work with the National Park Service on disability history initiatives.

Our summer intern is conducting research on American Deaf suffragists. She is especially interested in learning more about the Gallaudet alumnus Georgia Elliott Hasenstab.

She started her search by reviewing Dr. Joan Naturale's excellent Deaf Suffragists guide at RIT Libraries ( But our intern has struggled to track down more digitized information.

Do you have recommendations for any scholars of or documents about Deaf suffragist activism? If so, please email me at and Lu Ann Jones at

Thank you!
