Description

The National American Woman Suffrage Association’s 37th Convention, held in Portland, Oregon, June 29 to July 5, 1905, coincided with the Lewis & Clark Exposition, which opened on June 1. Held in Portland’s First Congregational Church, the NAWSA convention drew such notables as Honorary President Susan B. Anthony, Antoinette Brown Blackwell, Alice Stone Blackwell, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Anna Howard Shaw, Carrie Chapman Catt, Henry B. Blackwell, and Florence Kelley. Anthony was scheduled to give the closing benediction. In failing health, she was accompanied and cared for by her “sympathetic sister,” Mary Anthony, who maintained her own diary for 1905. (See Diary of Mary S. Anthony, 1905. Schlesinger Library, Radcliffe College, Cambridge, Massachusetts.) The convention program shows that Abigail Scott Duniway’s “Centennial Ode” was shared with the participants, and a prominent advertisement announced Duniway’s novel, From the West to the West, published in 1905, by A.C. McClurg, of Chicago.
