Abstract:

The League of Women Voters of Maryland was founded in 1921, shortly after the passage of the twentieth amendement granting women the vote. The League has antecedents in a number of suffrage organizations, including the Just Government League of Maryland and the Women's Suffrage League of Maryland. The League of Women Voters has organized county leagues and developed a program for voicing the concerns and furthering the interests of its members. The League has also been particularly interested in elections and voting; efficiency in government; social and child welfare; women's rights; world peace; and education. Among the controversial areas in which the League has been active over the years are child labor; collective bargaining; food and drug administration; housing; the merit system in civil service; the United Nations; disarmament; the poll tax; civil rights; and the Equal Rights Amendment. League activities are documented in newsletters, press releases, correspondence, reports, and minutes.

Historical Note

In 1921, the Women's Suffrage League of Maryland affiliated with the recently formed League of Women Voters of the United States. The new League of Women Voters of Maryland, led by its president, Mrs. Charles Ellicott, organized County Leagues and developed a program for voicing the concerns and furthering the interests of its members. The non-partisan organization has, throughout its history, focused on a number of causes helping to shape American history. In particular, the League has been interested in elections and voting, efficiency in government, social welfare, child welfare, women's rights, world peace, and education. Thus, the League has consistently supported voter education, effective government, and the rights of the under-represented. Using these areas of concern to organize its activities, the League has responded to important issues as they have arisen and has generated interest in questions that may have been overlooked. Among the controversial areas in which the League has been active over the years are child labor, collective bargaining, food and drug legislation, housing, the merit system in civil service, the United Nations, disarmament, the Poll Tax, civil rights, and the Equal Rights Amendment. In addition to these concerns, the Maryland League has been interested in local issues, including redistricting and reapportionment, state taxes and expenditures, the Maryland constitution, and state and local elections and election laws.

Series 3: Issues, 1910-1972 (15.5 linear feet)

This series contains correspondence, memoranda, reports, press releases, printed material, and newspaper clippings constituting the subject files of the League of Women Voters of Maryland. The bulk of the material spans the years 1921 to1968.

These files reflect the major concerns of the League including women's suffrage, elections and voting, taxes, state and local government, legislation, labor, child welfare, public welfare, and health and hygiene. Particularly valuable are the voters service files, providing information on the League's voter education programs, and the scrapbooks, documenting the League's early history - especially in the suffrage movement - in newspaper clippings.

Arrangement is alphabetical by subject.
