MS-147: Martha McClellan Brown Papers
William Kennedy Brown argues that former president Grover Cleveland should respect the work of women in political reform movements because he benefited from that work in the 1884 presidential election. In that election, Cleveland won New York, in part because the temperance candidate split off a small part of the Republican vote, elevating him to the Presidency. Martha McClellan Brown was deeply involved in the New York temperance movement in the years leading up to 1884. The essay was written ca. 1884.
