Biographical Note

Anna Naughton (1875-1950), a lifelong Manhattanite, was active in the New York City Democratic Party in the 1920s, serving as the Tammany co-leader of the 16th Assembly District in Yorkville for the New York County Democratic organization from 1920 until 1935.

Anna served as chair of the Committee on Sightseeing and Excursions for the 1924 Democratic National Convention, which was held in New York City. The purpose of the committee was to organize activities and events for the women attending the convention. These events, which took place all around Manhattan and in the neighboring boroughs between June 21 and July 4, 1924, included a reception and tea at Governor’s Island, a visit to the Brooklyn Naval Yard and reception aboard the battleship Colorado, and a fashion show and tea with New York State delegates, hosted by Eleanor Roosevelt.

Anna’s husband, Michael J. Naughton, was also active in the Tammany Hall organization. In addition to serving as the chairman of the county committee in the 16th Assembly District of Manhattan, he ran the Yorkville Casino at 210 East Eighty-sixth Street. While it was called a casino, “there was no gambling on the premises whatsoever; it was a place for food and drink, ballroom dancing, movie viewings, meetings, and other social activities.” Michael passed away on July 4, 1931.

Anna Naughton passed away on December 7, 1950, in her home at 154 East Ninety-first Street.

Scope and Content Note

This collection, mainly correspondence, is focused primarily on Anna’s work as the chair of the Committee on Sightseeing and Excursions for the 1924 Democratic National Convention, which was held in New York City. The committee planned activities between June 21 and July 4, 1924, for attendees of the national convention.

The correspondence is organized alphabetically by the last name of the sender/receiver. Included is a letter from Franklin Delano Roosevelt, dated May 27, 1924, in which Roosevelt asks Naughton to “write to your personal friends in other states sending them copies of the pamphlet ‘What Everybody Wants to Know About Alfred E. Smith,’” as well as inviting her to a meeting on June 3. The 1924 convention, during which Roosevelt made the speech nominating Al Smith for president, marked FDR’s return to political life following his having been stricken with polio three years earlier.

Among the correspondents are several women who were active in the New York State votes-for-women movement that resulted in the passage of the woman suffrage amendment to the New York State Constitution in 1917, including Harriet May Mills, Mrs. Gordon Norrie, and Katrina Ely Tiffany.

Box 3 contains committee-related paperwork, which is organized alphabetically by committee task/activity. Included are lists of names of people serving on her committee, handwritten and typed notes related to committee-sponsored activities such as a luncheon and a visit to the Navy Yard in the North River, and a “scorecard” given to participants at the convention.

Also in Box 3 is a scrapbook that contains materials that provide a look into Anna’s life that extends beyond and intertwines with her work in the world of politics. Included are a black-and-white full-length photograph of Anna dated 1924, newspaper clippings dated 1921-1927 (bulk: 1924-1925) reporting on her political work and activities, a 1922 newspaper clipping of an article reporting how Amelia Naughton (Anna’s daughter) became the first woman to lead a band of male musicians in any New York City park, a March 1921 letter from Anna to a Mr. Fleming discussing raising money for an Irish relief fund, and a certificate to Anna from the American Red Cross expressing “grateful recognition of the faithful and self-sacrificing service rendered during the Influenza Epidemic, 1918. at New York City.”

Also contained in Box 3 is a copy of the book The Dewey Reception and Committee of New York; an Album of One Thousand Portraits, Scenes, Views, etc. This book was an 1899 Christmas gift inscribed by George A. Burrell to Michael J. Naughton (Burrell was an alderman for the 30th Assembly district of Manhattan and Anna Naughton’s first husband, who had died on November 7, 1905; Anna and Michael wed in 1907).

An extra-large folder contains a photograph of approximately 50 people, some in Halloween-type costumes. The photo is labeled: [Thanks?]giving Costume Dance of the [New York City?] Democratic Club, 10th A.D. [Assembly District?], [month missing] 22, 1924.
