Finding Eliza Messenger
MetadataShow full item record
My research project for Eliza F. Messenger began as a class assignment for English 379Z. First, we were to research a lesser-known suffragist and write a biography about her. Then, we were to create a research poster and present our work at the Undergraduate research fair. Finally, we wrote an essay reflecting on the experience. I began my research with only the name and home town of my suffragist. After various research setbacks and successes, I was able to learn about this woman's life and involvement in activism.
