Gertrude Jane and Ruth Augusta Nelson letters, 1891-1897.

Approximately 110 letters from Gertrude (later Mrs. Reinhard A. Wetzel) and Ruth Nelson to their parents while attending Sage College for Women colorfully portray university and coed life in the nineties, and include descriptions of life at Sage College, courses and examinations, comments about professors, dating, parties, football games, clubs, Bible classes, activities at Sage Chapel, and prices of clothing in Ithaca. Special observations are made on such outstanding Cornell figures as George Lincoln Burr, Thomas Frederick Crane, Charles Henry Hull, Jacob Gould Schurman, Moses Coit Tyler, Andrew Dickson White, and Horace White. Also, three letters (1893) from the girls' father, Charles Alexander Nelson, a librarian at Columbia University, concerning family and friends.
