Microfilm [series] (2 reels)

The microfilm portion of the collection consists of two reels of film, approximately one linear foot of papers. Of special note here are her files as director of the Women's Division of the Democratic National Committee from 1937 until 1941. These consist mainly of speeches (and related materials) given at various conferences across the country by McAllister. Other materials microfilmed concern her work with the Women's Division during the 1940 Presidential Campaign and her involvement with the Reporter Plan. Correspondents in the collection include Franklin Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt, Frank Murphy, and Molly Dewson.

Other files microfilmed relate to Mrs. McAllister's early career. There are numerous news clippings dating from 1932 to 1948 which deal with her government work. Also found here are small amounts of material dealing with the Women's Organization for National Prohibition Reform and with Civil Defense.
