The New York State has announced it has acquired a series of 1917 Franklin County women’s suffrage petitions from Jean Kubaryk, a teacher at North Warren Central School District. Ms. Kubaryk had been displaying the petitions in her classroom for years, but decided to donate the petitions to the state museum so they can be preserved for future generations. New York State will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the passage of women’s suffrage in 2017. The petitions will be displayed in an upcoming state museum exhibition, “Votes for Women: Celebrating New York’s Suffrage Centennial” that is scheduled to open in the fall of 2017.
