  • Research paper (1990) and accompanying files (1865-1930) of Andreas Etges concerning Mathilde Franziska Anneke and her school for girls in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The paper, entitled "Equality and Education: Mathilde Franziska Anneke's Tochter-Institut in Milwaukee," provides an in-depth look at this German American writer, poet, activist, suffragist, and educator whom Susan B. Anthony credited as her inspiration in pursuing women's suffrage. Research files are largely in German and consist of photocopied newsclippings and photocopies of three volumes of notebooks kept by Emma Bach. The copies relate to Anneke and her involvement with the school, Frei Gemeinde (Free Church) of Milwaukee, Club der Radikalen (the Milwaukee chapter of Radical Democracy, a political party), and suffrage work. Also included are several obituaries and life sketches written about Anneke, some of her poetry, and articles about efforts to place her on a League of Women Voters "Roll of Honor" in 1930.
