Students’ Writing to be Published
Under the supervision of Anne M. Boylan, professor emerita of history, five students enrolled in Carl Suddler’s spring semester African American Women’s History course researched and wrote short biographical sketches of Delaware’s African American suffrage leaders. Three of the sketches were published in September in the online journal Women and Social Movements; the other two will be published in the March issue. The students (and the suffrage leaders about whom they wrote) are Helene Carey (Nellie B. Nicholson Taylor); Stephanie Clampitt (Caroline B. Williams); Alanna Gordon (Emma Belle Gibson Sykes); Alison Lewis (Alice Gertrude Baldwin); and Carol Scott (Blanche Williams Stubbs). The project is part of a larger undertaking to research and publish short biographies of some 2,000 national and state suffrage leaders, in advance of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 2020.
