The HVHS Newsletter is publishing a two-part series on The Women's Suffrage Movement in Hopewell Valley, written by Joseph R. Klett, Executive Director of the New Jersey State Archives, president of The Hopewell Museum, and a life member of the Hopewell Valley Historical Society. The articles were inspired by the centennial of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the federal constitution granting women voting equality in the U.S.
