Because MIT's Simile Exhbit framework gives multiple options for formatting and viewing data, it was a logical choice as I moved into the development of digital investigations.

In this instance, I mapped NWSA-planned speaking engagements for multiple national suffragists to understand how widespread the engagements were, how they fit into the pre-election timeframe and how speakers' time was divided.

The next project I worked on was to drill down into one speaker's use of time on the road and, given Harriette Robinson Shattuck's extant scrapbook and the fact that she was campaigning in one of the most recently "railroaded" parts of the state, her work patterns are both accessible and very interesting. The Exhibit framework allows for the annotation of instances on the timeline and/or map.

Moving to the local leadership, a long-ago compiled spreadsheet of individuals mentioned in the Western Women's Journal cried out for mapping and sorting ability to truly understand how these women fit together and if geography affected networks. The resulting map and table make data visible and pliable in a way spreadsheets do not. Although subscriber lists for the Journal are incomplete, I plan to develop a similar visualization to understand how wide its circulation really was.

The importance of local leadership is demonstrated in the devlopment of local and county organizations and, again using data from the Western Woman's Journal, I mapped their presence in the state.
