  • Notes 
    • "Therese Walling Seabrook [...] was very active in the women's suffrage movement in the late 19th and early 20th century as well as the temperance movement, being a member of the Women's Christian Temperance Union of Keyport, New Jersey. A highlight of the collection is a letter from Susan B. Anthony (February 22, 1888) to Seabrook thanking her for a monetary donation and comments on her visit to Washington D.C., note by Florence Howe Hall, co-signed by Emma Blackwell and a letter by Clara Bewick Colby." [Rand Boyd, citation details below.]

      "Therese Walling Seabrook lived on West Front Street overlooking the Bay. She was the wife of a prominent businessman in Keyport and an activist for women's rights. She was a strong supporter of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union and an advocate of women's suffrage. In her mind, as in the minds of others late in the 19th-century, there was a connection between the temperance movement and the suffrage movement. In 1884, suffragists Phebe Hanaford of Jersey City, Therese Walling Seabrook of Keyport, and Henry Blackwell of Massachusetts met with the New Jersey Assembly Judiciary Committee to press for the introduction of a women's suffrage resolution in the Assembly. They succeeded in having the bill introduced, but the Assembly would take no action on the resolution." [Keyport Historical Society: Three Generations of Seabrook Women]
