Items: Cornelia Templeton Jewett Hatcher Papers, 1867-1953
These papers consist of three scrapbooks including numerous photographs related to
Cornelia‟s years as editor of the Woman‟s Christian Temperance Union newspaper, The
Union Signal; her visit to the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition in Seattle in 1909; her trip to
Alaska with a group of national newspaper editors the summer of 1909 on the Alaska
Steamship company‟s vessel the S. S. Northwestern; her 1911 marriage to Robert Lee
Hatcher, the prospector and miner who is credited with starting underground mining in the
Talkeetna Mountains of south-central Alaska in 1906; her winter in Knik, Alaska, in 1912-
13; her role in Robert Lee Hatcher‟s development of the Gold Mint Mine; her gathering a
petition for woman suffrage that contributed to the first bill passed by Alaska‟s first
legislature enfranchising Alaska women in 1913; her service as president of the Alaska
Woman‟s Christian Temperance Union, 1913-1924; her leadership of the 1916 prohibition
campaign in Alaska that resulted in a two-to-one vote in favor of prohibiting intoxicating
liquor effective January 1, 1918; her lobbying Congress for approval of Alaska‟s Bone Dry
law; her support of the Alaska Federation of Women‟s Clubs; her operation of a beauty salon
and service as a leader in the Business and Professional Women‟s and Soroptimist clubs in
Long Beach, California, 1924-30; her service during the Hoover administration as research
secretary for the Women‟s Division of the Republican Party, 1930-35. [Scrapbooks were
assembled by Cornelia‟s daughter, Hazel Jewett Phelps Wells; they contain Hazel‟s notes on
her mother‟s life.]
The Anchorage Museum Collection Division has a Sidney Laurence painting commissioned
by the Hatchers and painted from Cornelia‟s photograph of the Hatcher Relay Station 30
miles up the trail in the Talkeetna Mountains. This painting and the 3 scrapbooks were
donated to the Anchorage Museum by Cornelia‟s great granddaughter Robin Rustad. A copy
of a related scrapbook that Cornelia donated to Frances E. Willard Memorial Library in
Evanston, Illinois, provided by Beverly Beeton is archived with the Hatcher Papers. This
scrapbook contains copies of many of Cornelia‟s publications and the Alaska WCTU annual
meeting reports and programs.
These papers are significant because they document Cornelia‟s involvement in women in
Alaska getting the vote in 1913, seven years before passage of the Nineteenth Amendment
in 1920 and her major leadership role in convincing Alaskans to ban liquor four years before
passage of the Eighteenth Amendment that prohibited liquor nationally from 1920-1933.
The mining community will be interested in the stories of Robert Lee Hatcher‟s mining
efforts and the photographs of him and the Gold Mint Mine in the Talkeetna Mountains.

39 Total page w/ note: Although all the “publicity” pertains to her W. C. T. U. and
allied activities, her major “job” concerned the affairs of Bob‟s mining projects. Aside
from being camp cook at times and busying herself with much physical activity, she
handled all the business affairs. She did all the correspondence and carried a heavy
burden in raising money for the development work. There were many and great
disappointments, such as “losing the vein” of gold, etc, and finally complete failure of
all their hopes. Bob as chiefly a prospector, with little ability or experience in
business. This heavy burden, combined with the hardships of “frontier life,” finally
broke her health and forced her to leave Alaska permanently when she brought
Cornelia “outside” in the fall of 1922, she continued on to San Diego, Calif., to
recover her health and fit herself to be self-supporting once more. To do this, she
completely changed “careers,” taking a course in beauty work—and this began a
completely new story with her move to Long Beach in 1923. (In Book II)

This is Book Two of the fabulous career of my Mother, Cornelia Templeton Jewett
Hatcher. It is unfortunately not a complete record.
It must be supplemented by two volumes which give the record of her two years as
President of the Business and Professional Women‟s Club of Long Beach California
during which time (1927-29) she was also honored by the Southern District of the
California Federation of B. & P. W. Clubs.
Following her departure from Alaska in 1922, she spent several months in San
Diego, where she recovered her health and prepared herself for operating a Beauty
Shop. A newspaper interview in the B&PW book tells how she chose Long Beach for
that business venture.
1/a pic-The Colonial 1422 East Third St. Long Beach, California w/ note:
This is the house where she started, in 1923. She operated the Beauty Shop and
rented extra rooms. Although this may seem like a radical departure from her
previous activities, it really was just a “development” of earlier interests. During her
Chicago years she wrote a beauty column for one of the big daily papers. To do this
she made an intensive study of cosmetics. In 1923, she had intended to make many
of her own, but after an inspection of the Colonial Dames manufacturing, both of
materials and processes, she decided to sell their products, and this was the
beginning of a warm, business friendship.

her eastern trips to conventions and the recognition she received there.

The B.&P.W. Press book (near end of larger volume) has reports of her election as
President of the Woman‟s City Club, Long Beach‟s largest. 1929-30 was probably her
biggest year, because of this position. She was given a book of press clippings for this
year too. However, much of the material related to many other people. In 1958 I
learned that the Club had achieved its objective of a building of its own and I was
fortunate to find the regular meeting in progress when I called there. I met several
women who had known Mother and were most enthusiastic in their praise of her. I
learned that they were lacking a record of her year, so I sent her Press book when I
returned home. See letter from Mrs. Harding.
