Scrapbooking: No Documents, No History

Photograph of an open scrapbook (Men’s League for Woman Suffrage, Miller Scrapbook, Library of Congress.) Collage and scrapbook material surround the book.

This teen or adult program uses Library of Congress women’s suffrage primary sources, such as letters, diaries, women’s self-published information sources and other ephemera, to examine how suffragists documented their activism and feelings on women’s rights and social issues of the time.

Program attendees use current magazines, newspapers, flyers, ephemera and personal effects to start their own scrapbook and create their own DIY personal history (that might become a future primary source!).
