Special Collections

The RevolutionThe Lewis & Clark Special Collections hold a number of rare book and archival collections that document the suffrage movement and the lives of women during the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with a particular focus on women in Oregon.

These collections include the Abigail Scott Duniway Collection, the Susan B. Anthony Journals, the Papers of the YWCA of Portland and the Diaries of Marion Harriett Crable Bennett and Marion Hope Bennett.

The Jean M. Ward Collection on Gender Studies was established to recognize the many contributions of Jean M. Ward, Professor of Communication at Lewis & Clark College from 1964-2006.  Jean was a founder of the Gender Studies Symposium and the founder and initial director of the Gender Studies Program at the College.
