Biographical Sketch

Born Jane Yelvington in La Vernia, Texas, on December 30, 1877, Jane McCallum became a leader in the women's suffrage movement in Texas. After raising four children with husband Arthur Newell McCallum, Sr., McCallum began her career in politics working for women’s right to vote. In 1915, members of the Austin Women’s Suffrage Association elected her President, and she later served as Secretary of the Texas Equal Suffrage Association (TESA). McCallum worked for passage of the state constitutional amendment allowing full suffrage, writing columns for newspapers, delivering speeches on the subject, and assisting with letter writing campaigns and visits to Texas by suffrage leaders from other parts of the U.S. In 1918, McCallum was present when Governor William P. Hobby signed a bill into law permitting women in Texas to vote in primary elections. Despite intense campaigning by McCallum and other members of TESA, the full suffrage amendment did not pass in a 1919 election. Only when it appeared that the United States 19th Amendment would carry the majority of states did Texas voters agree to grant women the right to vote in any election.

Once the suffragists won the fight for the vote, they turned their organizational skills to lobbying the Texas Legislature. McCallum served as Executive Secretary of the Women’s Joint Legislative Council to lobby for education bills, prison reform, stronger prohibition controls, maternal and child health funds, and eradication of illiteracy and child labor. She also served at the helm of Daniel J. Moody’s campaign against Miriam Ferguson for governor of Texas in 1926. Once elected, Moody appointed McCallum to Secretary of State, a post she held through Moody’s term and Ross Sterling’s term two years later. One of her accomplishments while Secretary of State was restoring and displaying a copy of the Texas Declaration of Independence that she found in a Capitol vault. During this time, a book of her essays on early American leaders, Women Pioneers, was published.

McCallum’s later career included work on the first Austin City Planning Commission. She was also the first woman to serve on a grand jury in Travis County. McCallum continued to write and participate in civic organizations in Austin. She died on August 14, 1957.

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of correspondence, printed materials, legal and financial documents, genealogical information, periodicals, creative works, diaries, press releases, posters, and photographs documenting the woman’s suffrage movement, Jane McCallum’s personal life and career after suffrage, and Minnie Fisher Cunningham’s activities after suffrage.

There are 17.8 linear feet of materials documenting Suffrage Organizations [Texas Woman Suffrage Association, (TWSA), Texas Equal Suffrage Association (TESA) and National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA)], covering the time span of 1893 to 1947, with materials largely dating between 1900 and 1920. Jane McCallum notes on the inside cover of the TESA-Treasurer’s Record Book. “I did not join the Equal Suffrage Association until 1916. So much material [was] given to me for safe-keeping presumably because I lived in Austin, had lots of room in our home and was a natural researcher.” Because of this, the early attempts by Annette Finnigan and her sister to organize the women of Texas are included along with extensive documentation leading up to the passage of the 19th Amendment. Contained within this material is a significant history of all aspects of the movement including their alignment with prohibition in an attempt to promote suffrage. Photographs of Jesse Daniel Ames, Helen Moore, Margaret L. Watson, Rebecca Henry Hays, Alice McFadin, Miss Frank King, Mary Ship Sanders, Emily Newell Blair, Florence Sterling, Harriet Taylor Upton, and others in the suffrage movement are part of the collection, with some containing brief biographical notes. The correspondence of McCallum and Cunningham, the president of TESA, with other suffrage organizations in the state, newspaper editors and legislators opens a window into the opposition that they faced for many years. A scrapbook dating from 1893-1895 documenting the Equal Rights Association was given to McCallum in 1947 by Veree McFadin Godfrey and is also part of the TESA/TWSA series. Materials from NAWSA include correspondence with Carrie Chapman Catt, and all of the supporting materials available to the Texas organizations. Of note is correspondence sent to and from Maude Sampson, an African American civic leader, and the El Paso NAACP vice president. Maude wrote to the state and national suffrage associations seeking the induction of her local suffrage club. The only way clubs could affiliate with NAWSA was directly through their state's association, and from the beginning, Texas state woman suffrage associations were segregated. A couple of the letters clearly illustrate the racial divide in the suffrage movement specifically applying to Maude Sampson's request. There is also correspondence and financial records documenting tours that took the field workers to most areas of the state. Posters, ballots, broadsides, and periodicals also document the suffrage organizations.

Jane McCallum’s personal and public life after suffrage makes up the second series. The 31.4 linear feet covers the time period of 1815-1967. Photographs document her immediate family, extended family, cemetery headstones, vacations, buildings, and friends. She kept correspondence and materials relating to her husband, children and other family members. Her interests and activities, events in Austin, Texas, and the world are well documented, as are her tenure as Secretary of State and her work on the Joint Legislative Council of Women's Organizations. She was also active in national and state politics. There is material on the Moody, Hobby and Sterling governor’s races, along with her fight against Governors James and Miriam Ferguson. She was a member of Austin’s Planning Commission in the late 1940s and early 1950s, and involved in the local politics of Austin. The institutions and organizations, both local and national, she was involved with are in this series. For her writings and books that she produced, there is a great deal of accumulated research and drafts of her finished works. She wrote about the suffrage movement and made her papers on suffrage available to A. Elizabeth Taylor and Mrs. Willie Bowles in the 1930s and 1940s for their research and writing.

The papers on Minnie Fisher Cunningham make up about 1.5 linear feet and cover a time period of 1918-1944. Her employment at A&M College Station and Washington from 1930-1943 is documented, as well as her interest in politics through newspaper clippings and information on various organizations. Her run for senate and for governor is also documented through photographs, clippings, campaign posters, and notes.
