SUFFRAGE BIBLIOGRAPHY RUTHE WlNEGARTEN A comprehensive history of the Texas women's suffrage movement has not yet been written. There have been a number of master's theses, but as yet, no dissertation deals solely with the history of the Texas movement. Nor have biographies been written about the two key suffrage leaders, Jane Y. McCallum and Minnie Fisher Cunningham. Histories of suffrage activities in the various Texas cities and counties would be very helpful in reconstructing the history of the statewide movement. Following is a bibliography, by no means complete, designed to assist community historians, academicians, students, and authors who wish to pursue this important subject. The political history of Texas will be incomplete until a history of the state's suffrage movement is written. The two major suffrage collections are those of the movement's leaders , Jane Y. McCallum and Minnie Fisher Cunningham. Their riches remain to be mined. Other important papers are those of Erminia and Mariana Folsom and of Jessie Daniel Ames. Fortunately for researchers , there is no scarcity of significant materials.
