POOR FAMILY

Hide Profile

Letters, diaries, clippings, photographs of the Poors and their related branches, covering five generations of New England life. Collection centers on Henry Varnum Poor, the railroad journalist and economist, and his wife, Mary Pierce Poor, participant in social reform movements and daughter of the Rev. John Pierce, minister of the First Church of Brookline, Mass. for fifty years. Early material relates to the Pierce family and includes letters of the Rev. Pierce and his wife, Lucy Tappan Pierce, daughter of Benjamin Tappan, progenitor of the abolitionist family and letters of Lucy Pierce Hedge and her husband, Frederic Henry Hedge, the Transcendentalist minister. Later papers contain the family letters of Henry Varnum Poor's children, including Henry William Poor, New York banker, and his grandchildren.
