Marian Cox (b. 1882)
Marian Metcalfe married Dr. John Watson Cox at the age of 16. She lived with her husband at the Murray Hill Mansion on 5th Avenue in New York, and Stonecrest Domain in Ridgefield, Connecticut, until his death in 1928. In 1934 she auctioned off both homes and their furnishings. Marian Cox was remarried in 1943 to Captain James Fay Logan, whose duty in the Maritime Service led him to the North and South Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean.
This collection received a basic level of processing, including rehousing and collection-level description, in 2013.
Collections are processed to a variety of levels, depending on the work necessary to make them usable, their perceived research value, the availability of staff, competing priorities, and whether or not further accruals are expected. The library attempts to provide a basic level of preservation and access for all collections, and does more extensive processing of higher priority collections as time and resources permit.
