This is one of eight scrapbooks kept by suffragist Elizabeth Smith Miller of Geneva, New York, and her daughter Anne Fitzhugh Miller between 1897 and 1911. Elizabeth Miller was the daughter of the abolitionist Gerrit Smith and a cousin of Elizabeth Cady Stanton. She used $2,500 she raised from selling homemade marmalade for college loans for women. The Millers organized the Geneva Political Equality Club and represented it at national suffrage conventions and parades.
