Caroline Healey Dall was a leading 19th-century reformer, feminist, and essayist. This collection of manuscripts, letter-books, notebooks, scrapbooks, and personal journals provide scholars in women's studies, 19th-century religion, literature, and social and political history with a personal resource for in-depth study.

Dall played a significant role in the anti-slavery movement, the Underground Railroad, and the drive for women's suffrage. An early proponent of women's rights in the workplace, she produced a variety of works, including Woman's Right to Labor (1860), Woman's Rights Under the Law (1861), and The College, the Market, and the Court (1867), all significant feminist tracts included in the collection.
