With The Suffragents, I’ve been up and down the roads from Long Island to Albany several times with a detour to Little Rock in October, oh, and one in August to Chicago, to meet with the great team that has assembled around the database suffrageandthemedia.org and the forthcoming April 2019 special suffrage centennial issue of American Journalism, not represented below. Here, in reverse chronological order, are my “summer camp newsletters” about the places I’ve been and the people I’ve had the good fortune to meet along the way.
