Helen Biggers Collection

Identifier: H-98


This collection covers a number of primary readers and educational materials during the late 1800s and early 1900s. One very interesting item is a handwritten journal with meeting notes of the Stray Horse Association, circa 1868, with small sketches of brands and lists of post office locations near where stray horses were noted. Also included is a personal handwritten notebook of recipes and household hints.


  • Creation: 1868 - 1939
