Cultural & Heritage Commission Welcomes Ann Gordon

The Hunterdon County Cultural & Heritage Commission celebrates the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment with a program about New Jersey suffragists.  Ann D. Gordon, Research Professor Emerita of History at Rutgers University, will share her passion for the topic at the Historic Hunterdon County Courthouse in Flemington March 14 at 1:30 p.m.

Dr. Gordon has studied the movement for woman suffrage for nearly four decades as an author, editor, and lecturer. Her six-volume edition of the “Selected Papers of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony” was published from 1997 to 2013.  In 2012, she received the Silent Sentinel Award by the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial Association, which honors an individual who exemplifies the traits of those women who made personal sacrifices to secure the 19th Amendment and were imprisoned at the Occoquan Workhouse after picketing the White House in 2017 for the right to vote.

Toward celebrating woman suffrage at this centennial, Dr. Gordon’s essay on the 19th Amendment appears in the National Park Service’s website publication, “19th Amendment and Women’s Access to the Vote Across America.” She also served as a historical advisor to the National Archives in preparing its suffrage centennial exhibit, “Rightfully Hers;” and will be the ‘expert’ for the New York Times’s “Journeys with the Times” centennial tour to Washington in May 2020.

The program is free and open to the public. Walk-ins are welcome, but seating is limited. Pre-registration is encouraged via email to: cultural@co.hunterdon.nj.us  or by calling 908-237-2010.

The historic courthouse is an accessible location. If you have any questions or need an accommodation, please contact Carrie or Nancy at 908-237-2010. Accessible parking is available in the lot behind the county administration building and historic courthouse; additional free public parking is available nearby.
