Howard Haines Brinton and Anna Shipley Cox Brinton papers, 1859-2005.

The collection includes genealogical, biographical and autobiographical materials relating to Anna Shipley Cox Brinton and Howard Haines Brinton. There are letters from Anna Brinton from her early youth, through her boarding school days at Westtown School, receipt of her Ph. D. from Stanford University and service in the feeding program in Germany and Poland under the A.F.S.C., family life, academic career, travel under Quaker concerns, especially to Japan and work as co-director of Pendle Hill. Anna Brinton's correspondents include: American Friends Service Committee personnel, Minnie Bowles, various Brinton family members, Henry Cadbury, various Cox family members, Hans Freund, Joan Mary Fry, Anna Hartshorne, Mary Hoxie Jones, Rufus M. Jones, Hertha Kraus, Margarethe Lachmund, Mills College personnel. There is an accumulation of information prepared by AB on classical studies, specifically on Virgil and Horace and including some drawings by AB, her trip to Europe and Asia, including China, in 1946, Anna Brinton's notebooks from the period in Japan in 1953-54, as well as in Korea in 1954 and on travel home through Hawaii in 1954. This is separate from the diaries which she kept from 1936-1954, and then appointment-book style diaries, 1955- 1968. There are also glass slides of silhouettes of Quakers and photographs taken in Japan, as well as miscellaneous materials, including Christmas cards hand-drawn by ASCB. The collection continues with the correspondence of Howard Brinton, from his early youth, then teaching at Guilford College in North Carolina, his work with the feeding program of the AFSC in Germany (1920-21), his marriage to ASCB and the birth of their children, teaching at Mills College in California, the trip to Japan and finally, settling in as co-director of Pendle Hill (1936). He maintained connections and interest in many Japanese friends and acquaintances. Brinton writes about his publications, his beliefs, lectures, and his marriage to Yuki Takahashi (1972). HHB's early letters are primarily to his parents, then also to Anna and Anna's parents. His correspondents include: Stephen Hobhouse, Yukio Irie, Rufus Jones, Walter Miles, Douglas Steere and many others. In addition to HHB correspondence are his book reviews and contracts, notes and research on topics of interest to him, manuscripts, typescripts and published articles, juvenilia, poems, lectures and diaries. Many of these deal with the theme of American Quakerism. As well are materials relating to his academic life at Haverford College, Harvard University, Pickering and Mills Colleges. There are documents and pictures relating to the German and Spanish feeding program relating to both HHB and ASCB. Included here are some unusual photographs from Almora Gaza accompanied by a note suggesting that AFSC had a project with refugees in Gaza. In the papers of Alvin J. Cox, arranged with Cox family materials, are photographs of Philippine natives probably taken in 1917 when Cox was visiting on an inspection trip of the Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources as Director of the Bureau of Science. The photographs are of the Igorot people of the Philippines.
