Is Old Locked Safe Linked to Susan B. Anthony?

Historians in Rochester are eagerly awaiting the opening of an old safe that could be linked to women’s rights advocate Susan B. Anthony.

The Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester reports that the safe is in the Manhattan office of the National Council of Women of the United States, an organization Anthony helped establish 125 years ago.

Officials at the University of Rochester’s Susan B. Anthony Center for Women’s Leadership have hired a locksmith to open the safe on Tuesday. Staff members at the National Council of Women say the safe hasn’t been opened in years.

Anthony helped create the organization in 1888.

The safe’s door is etched with the words “Woman Suffrage Party,” a group formed in 1909. Anthony died in Rochester three years earlier and is buried there.
