In 1889, she attended Miss Porter's School, Farmington, Ct. and then studied, 1890-1894, at State College which became the University of Kentucky. On November 17, 1898, she married Desha Breckinridge, editor of the Lexington HERALD. Both Breckinridges were involved with the social and political issues of the day.Despite her illness of tuberculosis of the bone and in keeping with her heritage as a granddaughter of Henry Clay, Madeline McDowell Breckinridge made significant contributions to the causes which she initiated or supported. Mrs. Breckinridge served as president of the Kentucky Equal Rights Association, 1912-1915 and again in 1919. She was second vice-president of the National Woman Suffrage Association, 1913-1914. In addition, she was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Fayette County Tuberculosis Fayette County Associated Charities, on the executive committee of the Lexington League and was vice-president of the Kentucky Child Labor Commission.The collection consists almost entirely of pamphlets, broadsides, leaflets and printed materials which reflect Mrs. Breckinridge's wide range of interest in social and political concerns. There are very few letters in the collection. The majority of the papers are devoted to women's suffrage issues. The materials are arranged by subject. When the collection was originally organized in 1952, there were 1003 items. When the papers were reorganized for better access and an inventory was created in 1997, the pieces were not counted.For additional information about Madeline McDowell Breckinridge, please see Preston Breckinridge's Madeline McDowell Breckenridge, Chicago, University of Chicago Press, c1921l; Dr. Melba Porter Hay's 1980 University of Kentucky dissertation, "Madeline McDowell Breckinridge: Kentucky Suffragist and Progressive Reformer" and Dr. James Klotter's The Breckinridges of Kentucky, 1760-1981, University Press of Kentucky, c1986.Container ListAnti-Suffrage - Civic Improvement11Anti-suffrage, 1915-1918; undated materials.12Birth control, 1916-1920; undated materials.13Charities, 1904-1914.14Child labor, 1896-1905.15Child labor, 1906-1909.16Child labor, 1910-1912.17Child labor, 1913-1919.18Child labor; undated materials.19Child labor correspondence and miscellaneous materials, 1906-1915.110Child labor newspaper clippings, 1906-1913; mostly undated.111Civic improvement, 1905-1921; undated materials.Community Service - Labor Laws and Working Conditions, 1901?-1914212Community service, 1919.212.5Education, 1904-1919; undated materials.213Foreign materials; mostly undated.214Home rule, Denver, 1903-1904.
