Description
The collection chiefly contains correspondence and papers related to the reform interests of California feminist and pacifistic Alice Park (1861-1961), particularly women's rights, as well as some materials concerning Park family matters.
Background
Alice Locke Park (1861-1961), feminist, reformer, and pacifist, was born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1861, but lived most of her life in California. She was active in both national and international organizations for the improvement of prison conditions, labor laws, human education, wild life conservation, and the preservation of natural resources. Her primary interest, however, was in women's rights, and she was assistant director of the Susan B. Anthony Memorial Committee of California. She wrote and promoted the California law, adopted in 1913, granting women equal rights of guardianship over their children. Park died in 1961.
