Wonderful

What a wonderful art collection.

Robert H Wiese

Can't find much of anything about him, but his caricature of Wilson there at center left is some seriously sharp pen-and-ink work.

Partial answer

My guess is that it's the archive for The suffragist: official weekly newspaper of the Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage. The periodical folded in 1921.

Information

Does anyone have any information about who this woman is or what the organization is that housed all these images. I want to learn more!

Now redundant artwork

The suffragette movement obviously brought out a lot of creativity as well as political outrage. Where are those skilled drawings now, I wonder? This dedicated woman has so much material that it's overflowing the file cabinets
