Ballots, Bloomers, and Marmalade: The Life of Elizabeth Smith Miller
April 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
As part of its 2017 Centennial Celebration of Women’s Suffrage in N.Y.S., Oneida Public Library has invited historian and biographer Norman Dann to talk about Elizabeth Smith Miller, daughter of the abolitionist and philanthropist Gerrit Smith and in her own right a co-founder of the National Woman Suffrage Association along with her cousin Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. Dann, a retired professor of political science at Morrisville State College, is the author of the recently released biography of Miller entitled “Ballots, Bloomers, and Marmalade: The Life of Elizabeth Smith Miller.” He is also the author of “When We Get to Heaven: Runaway Slaves on the Road to Peterboro” and “Practical Dreamer: Gerrit Smith and the Crusade for Social Reform.” A resident of Peterboro, N.Y., Dann is actively involved in the National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum (NAHOF), the Peterboro Area Historical Society and the Smithfield Community Association. This program was funded in part by a Humanities New York Action Grant.
