Beverly Dalley ERA Collection

 Collection
Identifier: MS-369

Scope and Contents

The Beverly Dalley collection contains the materials collected by Beverly Dalley during her time

working with national and local chapters of the League of Women Voters, National Organization

of Women, Women’s Political Caucus, YWCA, Department of Health and Welfare and others.

The focus of Dalley’s research and materials is mainly on the Equal Rights amendment, Title IX,

and other women’s issues such as domestic violence, marital rights, education, poverty, and the

family. As an active member of the LDS church and feminist activist, Beverly Dalley’s

collection parallels Utah and the church’s political and social struggle for women with the

Raegan administration and national attitude and struggle for women’s rights. Materials range

from 1970 – 1996.

The collection is broken up into two main series: organizations and subject files. Organizations is

made up of local and national chapters’ minutes, notes, correspondence, by-laws and conference

material including pamphlets and speeches.

Subject files is broken up alphabetically by topic and also includes smaller organizations,

committees, and groups with less breadth than the larger organizations. Materials include a large

amount of newspaper clippings, notes, pamphlets and brochures, as well as correspondence,

press releases, bumper stickers, schedules, speeches, and political ephemera and cartoons.

At the end of the collection you will find women’s serials, protest posters and signs, and cassette

tapes ranging from morning shows to conference speeches.
