History of Woman Suffrage with Susan B. Anthony inscription, 1902
The Schlesinger Library already held two six-volume sets of History of Woman Suffrage when Mark H. Dall, the grandson of the suffragist Caroline Wells Healey Dall, donated his grandmother’s copy. The moving 1902 inscription discovered in volume four, to Caroline Healy Dall from the series editor Susan B. Anthony, ends “But you & I have done the best we knew—and so must rest content—leaving all to younger hands.”
