The Catherine Cooper Papers offer an in depth insight into the life of one woman living in the early 20th Century, preserving
her reflections on life, love, and education. Cooper was an avid writer from an early age who submitted essays to the Pioneer
Press paper and wrote short stories. She also kept detailed diaries from her teenage years and the letters she wrote to her
friends and families, which make up the bulk of the collection. There is also an abundance of ephemera she collected throughout
her life to remember her time as a student at the University of Minnesota and as a teacher at Marshall High School, Minnesota.
