This collection contains the papers of the family of Montana farmers and ranchers Florence Noble (1881-1968) and Royal H. Noble (1878-1971). The materials cover many aspects of the Nobles’ lives in Montana and California, chiefly dating from the late 1890s to 1960s, including ranch and agricultural business, frontier and pioneer life and history, and the Masons and Oddfellows. There are also 30 World War II letters of U.S. Navy yeoman Lester J. Noble.
Royal H. Noble (1878-1971) and Florence Mary Noble (1881-1968) were Montana farmers and ranchers whose families were among the first settlers of Broadwater County.
