Hunt Family Papers Open for Research

To celebrate Richard P. Hunt’s 217th birthday, the Women’s Rights National Historical Park has opened the Hunt Family Papers for research. The collection, now available to the public for the first time, includes materials dating from 1828 to 1856.

Richard Hunt, whose brick buildings still stand in Waterloo, NY, was an exceptional individual who believed strongly in equality, housing runaway slaves and hosting suffragettes. The Hunt Family Papers demonstrate this principled individual who contributed greatly to the town of Waterloo. For more information, visit their website: A finding aid is available online here:
