SOURCES

The Alma Lutz Collection, Vassar College Library, contains the Paulina Wright Davis Papers (PWDP), including holographic copies of seventeen speeches, an early draft and manuscript of A History of the National Woman's Rights Movement, and other manuscripts possibly intended for publication. There are also two travel diaries, possibly by a niece who accompanied her to Europe, and a notebook with autobiographical information about her early life.

The Isabella Beecher Hooker Collection (IBHC) at the Stowe-Day Library, Hartford, Connecticut, and the Caroline Healy Dall Collection (CHDC), Massachusetts Historical Society, each contain some three dozen letters written by or referring to Wright Davis. The American Antiquarian Society (AAS), Worcester, Massachusetts, holds the Kelley- Foster Papers (KFP), with correspondence between Kellogg Wright Davis, Abby Kelley Foster, and Stephen S. Foster and between Kelley Foster and Foster discussing her (KFC). The AAS also has a collection of nineteenth-century newspapers, including the Una, Revolution, Liberator, Water-Cure Journal, TWJ, Woman's Advocate, Journal of Moral Reform, and McDowall's Journal.

The papers, including full minutes, of the Providence Physiological Society (PPS) and the Rhode Island Woman Suffrage Association (RIWSA), organizations of which Kellogg Wright Davis was a founder and president, are held by the Rhode Island Historical Society.
