Title

Essay : Woman's right to the ballot by James H. Fairchild. 1870

Description

James H. Fairchild was the third president of Oberlin College from 1866 until he retired in 1889. Fairchild was an abolitionist and argued for social reforms including temperance and coeducation of the sexes. He did not support woman's right to vote.
This article was first published as a series of papers in The Advance. Fairchild calls for a careful examination of impact on society if women were to have the right to vote. He reviews the issue from all sides and argues that there is no guarantee that granting women the right to vote will have a positive outcome.
