Digital Branch of the University of Alaska Fairbanks Oral History Program

Suffragists Project Credits

Sherna Berger Gluck, professor emeritus at California State University, Long Beach, compiled the original suffragists material in the 1970s and produced an educational booklet and slideshow. In 2009, she allowed the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) Oral History Program to create this Jukebox program from that material. Ms. Gluck, founded the community-based Feminist History Research Project (FHRP) in 1972, and immediately began to collect oral histories of women who had been active participants in the suffrage and labor movements. In 1977, after she began to teach in women's studies at California State University, Long Beach, and established the Oral History Program there, she deposited her FHRP interviews there. These, along with the women's oral history interviews she and her students conducted, are all available online at the Virtual Oral/Aural History Archive of CSULB: In addition to her book of interviews with some of the suffragists featured in this presentation (From Parlor to Prison), Gluck is the author of Rosie the Riveter Revisited: Women, the War and Social Change and An American Feminist in Palestine, and the co-editor of Women's Words: The Feminist Practice of Oral History.

This Jukebox was created in 2009 by the Alaska and Polar Regions Department staff at the Elmer E. Rasmuson Library, University of Alaska Faibanks ~ Project Jukebox Staff: Stacey Carkhuff, Marla Statscewich, and Karen Brewster, with assistance from William Schneider, Curator of Oral History. Digital Photographic Services at Elmer E. Rasmuson Library, University of Alaska Fairbanks, under the direction of Marge Thompson (Digital Imaging Specialist), scanned the original slides for this digital project. In 2019, in recognition of the upcoming 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendmant, Karen Brewster of the UAF Oral History Program/Project Jukebox updated the Suffragists Project Jukebox into its current Drupal 7 format.
