Lemon and Mary Hine Papers
The collection consists of the incoming and outgoing correspondence of both Lemon and Mary Hine. The letters begin in the 1850s and continue to the late 1880s. Most of the letters are paired with their individual envelopes. There are also letters to and from their children and other descendants of the Hine family. Also in this collection are financial records, photographs, publications, articles, and invitations. The materials are divided into three series: Correspondence, Photographs, and Ephemera.
