Barnaby was a Postal Telegraph Manager at the Massillon,
Ohio branch in the early twentieth century. On Friday,
June 30, 1911, she received
a message from Mr. Collins that she was being moved to the Cleveland,
Ohio branch and would be checked out on Monday, July 3. Read her account
of the event and what happened. On one of her letters she writes, "about
the law for working hours for women that nearly made me lose my job."
Effie Barnaby affected by the laws for working women?
Were these laws important for women? Why?
Who were the suffragists?
