THE WOMAN'S JOURNAL 585 Boylston Street, Boston, Massachusetts Telephone: Back Bay 4717 Contributing Editors Mary Johnston Stephen S. Wise Josephine Peabody Marks Zona Gale Florence Kelley Witter Bynner Contributing Editors Ben B. Lindsey Caroline Bartlett Crane Ellis Meredith Mabel Craft Deering Eliza Calvert Hall Reginald Wright Kauffman Assistant Editor Henry Bailey Stevens Editor-in-Chief Alice Stone Blackwell Manager Agnes E. Ryan December 4, 1915. Dear President: Dr. Anna H. Shaw has announced that she will not be a candidate for re-election as President of the National Suffrage Association. Mrs. Raymond Brown suggests that Dr. Shaw should be made Honorary President. I think this would be a very suitable thing to do. Mrs. Brown points out, however, that the constitution of the National Association does not mention an Honorary President, and that it is too late to give notice of an amendment to the constitution for this year. The only way to make Dr. Shaw Honorary President would be by unanimous consent. At Mrs. Brown's request, therefore, I am writing to the State presidents to suggest this, and to recommend them to bring the matter before their delegates to Washington, before the opening of the convention. Yours sincerely, Alice Stone Blackwell 3 Monadnock St., Dorchester, Mass.
