The collection documents the Howe Family of Sacramento. With roots as educators and abolitionists in the Midwest, members of the Howe family came to Sacramento in the 1870s. Several continued working in education, while Samuel Luke Howe Jr. was Sacramento city attorney from 1900 to 1908. The collection dates from the 1850s to the 1990s and consists primarily of correspondence, newspaper clippings, scrapbooks, photographs, artifacts, and other memorabilia that belonged to or was created by the Howe and Sunderland families, as well as other related families.
The Howe Family of Sacramento has its roots on the East Coast and in the Midwest as abolitionists and educators.
