ARRANGEMENT

The collection is arranged in ten series:

SCOPE AND CONTENT

This collection documents the personal lives of members of the Poor, Pierce, Fox, and Chandler families. The bulk consists of correspondence and diaries from the early nineteenth century, through the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and into the twenty-first century. Several members of the families served in the military and wrote home to describe their wartime experiences. The diaries offer glimpses into the daily lives of both men and women during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Feroline Walley (Pierce) Fox's diaries (#3.2-5.4) span 59 years and comment on her many activities, visitors, and family members. Those of Alfred Dupont Chandler (#15.11-17.3) span 23 years and comment on his bicycle or "velocipede" trips around the Boston area with the time and milage noted. Also of note is a manumission from 1778 (#5.7), and photostats of a 1658 will (#5.7). The twenty-first century is represented by e-mails, cards, daily calendars, and letters to and from members of the Chandler family, including the family of Caroline "Nina" Johnston (Chandler) Murray. Most of the folder titles, and the arrangement, were created by the processor; the donors' titles, when used, appear in quotation marks. Electronic records were received on six 5.25" disks.
