(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $526.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Leader of the women's suffrage movement in the United States (1847-1919) who was also a physician and one of the first ordained female Methodist ministers in the United States. Very appealing and seldom-seen 4.25 x 6.5 cabinet portrait of the suffragette in a half-length pose, signed on the reverse in ink, "In memory of one beautiful day together, June 5th 1895, Anna H. Shaw." Published by the Taber Photography Studio. In fine condition, with some scattered light foxing. An exceptional image of Shaw during the 1895 California woman suffrage referendum campaign, the state's first vote on the issue. Shaw traveled westward with Susan B. Anthony, drawing large crowds in Reno and Salt Lake City. Once in California, Anthony hired journalist Ida Husted Harper to publicize the woman suffrage question and campaigned vigorously. Despite wide support, opposition defeated the referendum in 1896.
