The Illinois State Historical Society had a call for papers through November 11th, but is still accepting papers regarding women's suffrage. Gwen Podeschi, with the Illinois State Historical Society said although the deadline has passed, they will still take these historical papers and documents through the end of the year. Podeschi said good examples include registration cards from the draft for World War I.
Podeschi said from April 20 to the 22 Lincoln Land Community College is hosting the 2017 Illinois History Symposium. She said the symposium will commemorate the 100th anniversary of America entering World War I as well as the women's suffrage movement.
Podeschi appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
