Description

Invitation embossed at the top with the "W.B." of the Woman's Bureau, reads: "The Ladies of the Woman's Bureau invite you to a reception on Tuesday evening Feby. 15th to celebrate the fiftieth Birthday of Susan B.

Elizabeth B. Phelps, a benefactor to Anthony's newspaper, The Revolution, opened the Woman's Bureau to house artists' studios and offices for women's organizations and to provide overnight accommodations for women visiting the city. In 1869, Anthony moved the office of The Revolution to the first floor of the house and that same year, the National Woman Suffrage Association was established there.
