From Seneca Falls to Seymour and South Bend: Mapping Indiana’s Suffrage History presented by Melissa Gentry

July 23 @ 6:00 pm

On close inspection, story maps reveal that Indiana—and Hoosier suffragists in particular—were ideologically, economically, racially, and socially diverse. Melissa’s multimedia story maps depict some of the people and places connected to the history of women’s suffrage. Complete with ups, downs, sometimes dramatic and “less than ladylike” but always colorful individuals and events, her talk incorporates historic photographs, correspondence, diaries, club minutes, oral histories, movies, newspapers, music, and artwork from the collections of Ball State University. With these sources, she introduces national and Hoosier women suffragists, while highlighting Hoosier cities connected to the local and national suffrage movements.

Melissa Gentry is the Map Collection Supervisor at the Ball State University Libraries’ GIS Research and Map Collection, where she provides instruction programs and curates special exhibits at Ball State University and the Muncie community.
