via Wikipedia and Library of Congress

November 30th, 1912
From the paper:
In Portland today Governor West will sign the proclamation declaring equal suffrage in Oregon. The proclamation has been written [?] copied by Mrs. Abigail Scott Duniway, for years champion of equal suffrage in the state, and after being signed by the governor will be filed away in the archives of the state house as a tribute to Mrs. Duniway, whose life work is thus realized.
