Table of contents What's This?
The collection consists primarily of correspondence between members of the Snedden family and their friends. It also includes genealogical material and photographs of the family. The bulk of the collection consists of over 30 years of correspondence between Genevra Sisson Snedden and her daughter Hope Snedden (between the years of 1912-1949). Other individuals of note in this collection include David Snedden, Leonard Carlsmith, Roger Carlsmith, James Merrill Carlsmith, Lawrence Allan Carlsmith, Ruth Snedden, and Pauline Snedden. The correspondence is made up mostly of personal matters and some business between the Carlsmiths and the Sneddens. Also included in this collection are the writings and personal papers of Karolyn Kuckenberg Carlsmith during her professional career. See Box 14, Folder 1 for a detailed genealogy, The Family of Genevra Sisson Snedden.
