The first of five sessions of hearings held between 1914 and 1917, this volume including statements delivered by suffragists Ruth Hanna McCormick, Antoinette Funk, Clara Bewick Colby, Crystal Eastman Benedict, and many others. Of special note is the anti-women's suffrage statement delivered by John R. Dos Passos as a member of the Man Suffrage Association: "I disagree with my learned friend from Newark [Mr. Matthews] when he says you have the right to pass this amendment. You have no right. I deny it" (p. 90). Dos Passos Sr. was married with a family when he had his illegitimate son, the novelist John Dos Passos, and though he eventually married Dos Passos Jr.'s mother, he did not recognize his paternity for another two years, when his son was sixteen.
