Anne Fitzhugh Miller, Life Member in NAWSA

From 1897 to 1911, Elizabeth Smith Miller and Anne Fitzhugh Miller, mother and daughter suffrage leaders in Geneva, New York, created seven scrapbooks documenting their involvement in the cause that bridged two generations. Anne’s life membership in the NWSA was emendated to include the word “American” in the title of the reunited national suffrage organization, NAWSA. In 1900, they documented commemorative events held in honor of Susan B. Anthony’s eightieth birthday by a new generation of suffragists.
