Collection Overview: The Woman Suffrage in Maryland Collection consists of a selection of 50 letters, pamphlets, and other ephemera dating from 1884 to 1928 taken from the Enoch Pratt Free Library's larger collection on the struggle for woman suffrage in Maryland.

The Enoch Pratt Free Library's Collection comes mostly from the personal papers of Emma Maddox Funck (1853-1940), who from 1904 to 1920 was President of the Maryland Association of Woman Suffrage. Because the Library possesses no documentation she or any of her family members donated these materials to the Library, the collection is known as the Woman Suffrage in Maryland Collection.

The Association for Woman Suffrage never succeeded in convincing the Maryland legislature to amend the state constitution to allow women to vote. But women suffragists were rewarded when the Suffrage Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified by enough states (never Maryland) to become law.
