It also had women as well as men and African Americans as well as European Americans as professors. African American professors were Charles L. Reason, William G. Allen (whose marriage to a white woman created a national scandal),and George Vashon. In 1856, there were nine professors and 226 students (half of whom were African American, including the Edmondson sisters, who escaped from slavery in Washington,D.C.) The school closed in 1860.,_McGrawvilleMarlene Parks, New York Central College, 1849-1860, 2 vols. Marlene Parks has just completed compiling 2 large volumes of research about the New York Central College which was located in McGraw, NY in the 1850's. There were 1062 known students, and She has found information on 616 of them. This was the very FIRST college in America to employ black professors, and at any given time, about 20% of the students were black. At least 134 of the students volunteered and served in the Civil War, and 40 of these young heroes were killed or wounded. The students were amazing humanitarians and their accomplishments were incredible! Some of them were close personal friends of U. S. Presidents, Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott, Henry Ward Beecher, etc., and their stories are not only inspiring, but also some are tragic, painful and even infuriating to read about. The books are both over 600 pages and include many photos. If you or someone you know is interested in obtaining a set, you can get them by contacting us in a message. The price for both volumes is $50.00, and if you want them mailed to you, it will cost $7.00 more towards the postage and shipping box.

Convention Hall (now Geva Theater)MonroeRochester75 Woodbury Blvd.146071868YY--under Naval Armory-Convention HallOctober 12-16, 1914. NAWSA held state convention in Rochester. In January, 1914, Campaign District Conferences and Schools of Method were held, followed by a convention and mass meetings in every county. During the year twenty-eight paid organizers were constantly at work. Mrs. Catt herself visited fifty of the up-state counties. The annual State convention October 12-16, was preceded by a state-wide motor car pilgrimage. On every highway was a procession of cars stopping along the route for street meetings and converging in Rochester for the convention. There was little change in officers. Three vice-presidents were added, Mrs. Alfred E. Lewis of Geneva, Mrs. Livermore, Mrs. Notman. Mrs. Cannon was succeeded as corresponding secretary by Miss Marion May of New York. Mrs. Abbott and Mrs. Shuler were added to the board of directors. A comprehensive program of work for 1914-15, laid out by Mrs. Catt, gave a definite task for each month and included raising a $150,000 campaign fund, each district being assigned a proportion; school for suffrage workers, special suffrage edition of a newspaper in every county, automobile campaign, work at county fairs and a house to house canvass to enroll the names of women who wanted the suffrage. Mrs. Catt's plan also included parades[Pg 471] in all the large cities and schools in every county to train watchers for the polls.;

Anthony on her 77th birthday. /The old Political Equality Club of Rochester, of which Miss Mary S. Anthony was president for many years, invited the convention for 1905. To go to the home city of the Anthony sisters was indeed a pleasure. They opened their house one afternoon for all who desired to take a cup of tea with them. It was crowded and many expressed themselves as feeling that they were on a sacred spot. A large number went to the third story to see the rooms where Mrs. Ida Husted Harper spent several years with Miss Anthony writing her biography and Volume IV of the History of Woman Suffrage. A reception was given at Powers Hotel attended by over 600 people. During the meetings Miss Anthony introduced a number of women who had attended the first Woman's Rights Convention, which adjourned from Seneca Falls to Rochester, Mary Hallowell, Sarah Willis, Mary S. Anthony and Maria Wilder Depuy. The convention was held in the Universalist Church. Mayor James G. Cutler, who welcomed the delegates, spoke very highly of his "esteemed fellow citizen, Susan B. Anthony" and presented her with a large bouquet of American Beauty roses. Mrs. Crossett in her annual address compared the convention held at Rochester in 1890, when there were but seven local clubs in the State, with this one representing 100 local and 31 county clubs.

The convention of 1896 was held in Rochester, November 18, 19, with more delegates present than ever before.

The welcome for the city was extended by Mayor George Warner. Many of the speakers of the previous year were present, with the addition of the Rev. Antoinette Brown Blackwell, the first ordained woman minister, and the noted colored woman of anti-slavery days, Harriet Tubman. The press chairman, Mrs. Elnora Monroe Babcock, reported that, instead of the 135 newspapers of the year before, 253 in the State were now using suffrage matter regularly furnished by her committee. On the Friday night succeeding the convention a banquet was given in honor of Miss Anthony, with over 200 guests. Mrs. Mary Lewis Gannett was toastmistress and Miss Anthony and Miss Shaw made interesting addresses.

Buckley, editor of the Christian Advocate, and emphasized the evident sympathy of the immense audience with the side of the question presented by the former. Suffrage Day had been observed at the Cassadaga Lake Assembly with an address by Miss Anthony, and also at the State Fair. The association was congratulated on the fact that there had been a further extension of School Suffrage during the year. All interest centered in the approaching convention to revise the constitution of the State, through which it was hope a woman suffrage ammendment would be obtained. Miss Anthony, Mrs. Blake and Mrs. Howell had been appointed to address the Legislature, which they had done in April of this year, for the purpose of securing women delegates to this convention, that was to be held in 1893, but eventually was deferred one year. Committees were appointed which visited the political State conventions the following summer, asking a declaration in their platforms for this amendment, but were unsuccessful.History of Woman Suffrage, v.
