Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The great body of the Young papers consist of Miss Young's fifth through twelfth grade schoolwork (1901-1908). The papers also include notes on Miss Young's family, personal correspondence and photographs.
Eleanor L. Young (c1890-1965) was the daughter of Junius Davis Young (1858-1917), a physician at the Stockton Insane Asylum, and Nellie L. Roberts (1871-1938). She was educated in the Stockton public schools and spent her entire life in the city of her birth. A woman of wealth, Miss Young devoted her life to civic activities and charity work. She gave these materials to Holt Atherton Special Collections in 1958.
