The Aurelia Reinhardt Collection on Women’s History

This is a subject collection of about 325 books, journals, and ephemera on topics pertaining to women, with a strength in women’s suffrage, birth control, and social issues. Items of interest include leaflets on suffrage, etiquette and domestic manuals, and a first edition of the six volume The History of Women Suffrage, edited by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and Matilda Joslyn Gage, published by the notorious phrenologists Fowler & Wells (New York, 1881–1922).

The Library also has the similarly named Aurelia Henry Reinhardt Papers which is the archive of Reinhardt’s presidency at Mills College.
