This undated flier asks voters to hear Maud Wood Park speak about women’s suffrage so that they can vote intelligently on the question of suffrage. Though undated, the flier is likely from 1915 when Massachusetts voted by referendum on the question of women’s suffrage.
The Commonwealth Museum and Women’s Suffrage Celebration Coalition of Massachusetts put together this digital exhibit in 2020 to commemorate the state’s suffragists on the 100th year anniversary. Suffrage100MA also compiled this set of historical resources for the centennial.
The following website, https://primaryresearch.org/woman-suffrage-in-massachusetts/ features information about the 1915 referendum including a link to an accounting of Beverly’s votes on the referendum. This website also includes information and links to the Beverly Beacon (1913) which offers a wide array of articles on women’s suffrage, etc.
