Woman's Suffrage by Constitutional Amendment
Tucker (1853-1932), the grandson of Henry St. George Tucker, was a Congressman from Virginia and an opponent of most social legislation. He argues that a Constitutional amendment providing for women's suffrage would violate the division between state and federal powers. According to Tucker, the right to vote is not a federal issue, but a local one. Reprint of the 1916 Yale University Storrs Lectures.
