Title

Recording Clerk's Card, Military Census, State of New York

Description

Military census card for Mrs. Alice T. Palmer, of Genesee County. The card indicates she will serve 1 day in Corfu, NY.

In an effort to demonstrate their support for the war effort and garner positive attention toward the fight for the right to vote, New York suffragists assembled volunteers for the World War I "military census" of able-bodied men in the county, a process involving surveying 320,000 residents and saving thousands of dollars for the government. While they enrolled people at military depots they distributed suffrage literature.
