Biographical / Historical
Ellen L. Thomas (1853-1925), was a birthright member of Radnor Monthly Meeting and president of Montgomery County Suffrage Association.
This small collection contains chiefly short manuscripts concerning women's issues, in particular suffrage and temperance. Most of the material, including essays on prominent Quakers and piece books, are by Ellen L. Thomas (1853-1925), a birthright member of Radnor Monthly Meeting and president of Montgomery County Suffrage Association
The collection is divided into three series:
Immediate Source of Acquisition
Donor: Unknown, date unknown
The source of these papers is unknown. At some date before 1967, the papers were catalogued and stored together with another group of papers from an identified source. In 2000, the papers were given separate cataloguing because they have no apparent connection.
Formerly cited as Walton and Thomas Families Papers, RG 5/160. The information concerning the source of these papers was lost, and sometime before 1967, the Thomas papers were catalogued and stored with a larger collection of papers concerning the Walton family, apparently unrelated. In October 2000, the two collections were catalogued as separate Record Groups.
Most of the materials in this catalog are not digitized and can only be accessed in person. Please see our website for more information about visiting Friends Historical Library of Swarthmore College Library
