December 01, 1877

THE BALLOT BOX, Toledo, Ohio, December, 1877  A quite rare women's suffrage newspaper which lasted just two years under this title. It is mentioned in Mott's History of American Magazines.
Mott notes that this publication was financed in part by Susan B. Anthony, and that having failed with "The Woman's Campaign" she: "...had better luck with the Ballot Box, of which she and Mrs. Stanton were associate editors. This journal was founded in Toledo, Ohio, by S. L. Williams...After two years, Mrs. Williams turned the paper over to Matilda Joslyn Gage, a leading suffragist, who moved it to Syracuse, New York, and called it the National Citizen and Ballot Box."
Four pages, tabloid-size, nice condition.
