Editorial cartoonist Nina Allender needs you
Who was Nina Allender? According to the Museum website:
Nina Allender was the official cartoonist for the National Woman’s Party. She contributed over 150 cartoons to the suffrage campaign, mostly original drawings created for The Suffragist, the weekly publication of the National Woman’s Party from 1913 until 1921, and later its successor, Equal Rights, published from 1923 until 1954.
The Museum itself is having some financial difficulties and after December 31, 2012, will close for the winter except by appointment. They hope to reopen for regular hours in the spring, but as of now, if you're interested in seeing her work in person, you've got a month left to visit. If sponsoring a cartoon is a financial stretch for you, the gift shop sells 9 postcards and 2 magnets of her cartoons. I've got one of each now.
Some more pictures of the Sewall-Belmont House can be seen here.
