Matilda Joslyn Gage: Bringing Her Into History

November 13, 11:15 AM

A lecture by Sally Roesch Wagner

Although she was considered equally important as Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony (the were called the "triumvirate of the movement"), Matilda Joslyn Gage (1828 - 1898) has been all but written out of history. Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner, the foremost authority on Gage, enlightens about this amazing women "lost from history," who offered her Fayetteville, New York home as a station on the Underground Railroad, was adopted into the Wolf Clan of the Mohawk Nation, edited a newspaper, encouraged her son-in-law, L. Frank Baum, to write his Oz stories, and worked for the separation of church and state.

Dr. Wagner will also share information about the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation, of which she is the founder and Executive Director. Formed seven years ago to bring this important suffragist to her rightful place in history, the Gage Foundation operates out of Gage's Fayetteville home.
