GAGE, Matilda Joslyn, reformer, born in Cicero, New York, 24 March, 1826. Her father, Dr. H. Joslyn, was an active abolitionist, and she inherited from him an interest in the questions of woman suffrage and slavery. She was educated in De Peyster and Hamilton, New York, and in 1845 was married to Henry H. Gage, a merchant in Cicero. From 1852 till 1861 she wrote and spoke on reform measures, and was an eager advocate of the abolition of slavery at any cost. In 1862, on the presentation of colors to a company of the 122d New York regiment, Mrs. Gage made an address in which she prophesied the failure of any course that did not abolish slavery. In 1872 she was elected president of the National woman suffrage association, and of the New York state woman's suffrage society, and she is now (1887) vice-president of each, and one of a special committee to arrange for an international council of women to meet in Washington in 1888. From 1.878 till 1881 Mrs. Gage edited and published the "The National Citizen" in Syracuse, New York She is the author of " Woman as an Inventor" (New York, 1870), and " The History of Woman Suffrage," with Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton (3 vols., New York, 1881-'6).
