Hi folks! Another week down, and you know what that means, another blog post. For the past couple of weeks, the focus has been primarily on newspapers, and the minutes of the annual Kentucky Equal Rights Association, but for this week I wanted to change it up a little bit. Earlier in the project, I began listening to some oral history interviews with women from Eastern Kentucky regarding their recollections of the suffrage movement and their early days of voting.
Twenty-three oral history interviews were conducted in July 1987 by Linda Wireman and Betty Nave that focus on the women's suffrage movement in eastern Kentucky in the early 1900s. These oral history interviews are digitized and accessible online via the University of Kentucky Libraries' Louis B. Nunn Center for Oral History. The series includes family histories and home life as well as women's roles in the suffrage movement.
