Dawes, Elizabeth F., collector.

Hide Profile

Elizabeth F. Dawes (1886-1989) was a collector of American documents, who sold a miscellaneous collection of American documents to the American Philosophical Society on August 29, 1957 for $350.00. She may have inherited at least part of the rich and varied collection from her father James H. Dawes, who was a scion of a wealthy and socially active Philadelphia family. His mother, who died in February 1922, was born in Sumter, South Carolina, the daughter of a Confederate soldier. She was devoted to charity and fund-raising and active in educational work, especially among young women in southern mountain districts.
