Women and 1920 Political Conventions Bibliography July, 1996

Query From Sue Schrems schrems@worldnet.att.net 17 July 1996

Can anyone recommend sources concerning women's activities at the national party conventions in 1920? I believe the Republican convention was in Chicago and the Democratic in San Francisco.

Thanks in advance.
