Family correspondence, financial papers, passport, and photographs (mainly b/w family and cruise snapshots) of Santa Barbara resident Margaret Frances Case Cook. Also, a journal inscribed to Mrs. E. E. Kellogg, wife of John Harvey Kellogg, from her adopted daughter Helena, ca. 1901-1902. The journal, written in various hands, mostly relates the antics of three boys staying with the many Kellogg children at Gull Lake in Michigan. Helena is mentioned as "one of the older girls." Ella Eaton Kellogg was the superintendent of the Battle Creek Sanitarium School of Cooking, a dietician, magazine editor, and author of the books Science in the Kitchen (1893) and Studies in Character Building: A Book for Parents (1905).
Margaret Frances Case was born November 2, 1915 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She spent her teenage years in Cooperstown, NY at the Knox School for Girls, and maintained a regular correspondence with her father, Dr. James T. Case (1882-1960), a staff physician at the Battle Creek Sanitarium, which was run by the health food pioneer John Harvey Kellogg (1852-1943).
