Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Scripps Family Collection, c. 1875-2006, consists largely of correspondence and newspaper articles in reference to the Scripps family and the organizations and events celebrated in their honor.
The Collection originates mostly from various donors including photographs donated by Ada Gillispie, Hilam Gardner, Anna Dohl, the Estate of Mary Estella Filson, Betty Ellen Ford, and William S. Kellogg. There are photographs from Mrs. W.A. Scripps' photograph book which were donated by Mrs. Albert Pierce. There are photographs of Ellen Browning Scripps which were taken by P.A. McDonough, commercial photographer. However, most of the materials are donated from unknown sources. We know for certain that the Ellen Browning Scripps drafts and much of the correspondence were the property of Edward Dessau Clarkson. Most of the newspaper articles originated from the La Jolla Light newspaper, the San Diego Union Tribune, or the La Jolla Village News.
