Personal Files Series, 1863-1976 and undated

11 boxes
Scope and content:

This series chiefly documents Fishback's personal life through personal correspondence, datebooks, diaries, and photographs. Also included are a number of items collected by Fishback such as etiquette books, newspaper clippings, church bulletins, and travel memorabilia. Biographical data, chiefly news articles, provide secondary source material about Fishback and her family. Materials that predate Fishback's birth consist of a small collection of 19th-century prints and illustrations.

The series is arranged into six subseries--Biographical Data; Correspondence; Datebooks, Calendars, Diaries, and Address Books; Etiquette Materials; Photographs; and Other Papers--and alphabetically therein.

Large-format materials have been removed to Oversize Materials. Where entire folders have been removed, their logical location in the container list has been indicated by dummy folders enclosed in brackets that indicate the physical location. Where single items have been removed, the relocation has been enumerated within parentheses.
