January 11, 2006

Mary M. Huth, University of Rochester librarian and expert in the archives of suffragist Susan B. Anthony, will talk about 1893 and show how Anthony, at the age of 73, continued her rigorous campaign for women's suffrage—a lifelong work that earned her national respect. Huth also is assistant director of the Department of Rare Books, Special Collections, and Preservation at the University's Rush Rhees Library.

The talk will be part of a yearlong commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Anthony's death on March 13, 1906. Rare Books will commemorate her life with an exhibition of letters, photographs, printed material, and memorabilia drawn from its extensive collections, which will open March 13. In addition, a conference on "Susan B. Anthony and the Struggle for Equal Rights" will be held on March 30, 31 and April 1 in Rush Rhees Library.

Tea Talks is a continuing series sponsored by River Campus Libraries. The talks are presented on selected Sundays in a casual atmosphere with tea and biscuits.
