CANCELED - To Collect and Preserve - a Year of the Woman event!

Saturday, March 14, 2020


This event has been canceled due to guest attendance cancellations. This event will not be rescheduled. 

To complement the "Rightfully Hers: American  Women and the Vote" popup exhibit, this mini- seminar will feature presentations covering history of the American Women’s Suffrage crusade, the use of objects during the Movement, the research and collecting of memorabilia, and the concerns of preserving such artifacts. Guest speakers will be Corinne Porter, Kenneth Florey, and Montpelier’s collections manager Joseph Sherren. Corinne Porter is curator of Rightfully Hers and several special  exhibits and permanent installations for the National Archives. She is also the assistant to the Archivist of the United States. Kenneth Florey is  an academic and author in this field, having  assembled one of the most comprehensive suffrage  memorabilia collections in the United States.
