The papers contain correspondence, letterpress copybooks, legal and financial documents, diaries, maps, blueprints, and photographs, the bulk of which documents the personal life and law and business careers of Edwin Hale Abbot.
Correspondence, diaries, bills, receipts, legal papers, genealogical notes, and miscellanea concerning the Allis family of New Haven, Connecticut, and members of the Colton, Stockbridge, and Foote families, 1840-1895.
Collection consists of two diaries by Arthur Botswick Van Buskirk documenting his military experience during World War I. Newspaper clippings, correspondence, tickets, and other ephemera were originally inserted between diary pages. Several pages in volume II detail the Armistice of November 11, 1918 in Paris, France.
Materials that have been removed from the diaries have been sleeved and labeled to indicate their original location, when known.
The material consists of a travel diary documenting Reverend Kempton D. Baldridge's (Yale Divinity 1988) tenure as command chaplain aboard the U.S.S. Thomas S. Gates during Operation Desert Shield and the Persian Gulf War.
One-fifth of the papers are devoted to correspondence, books, articles, speeches and research notes relating to her publication of Emily Dickinson's poems in Bolts of Melody (1945) and three subsequent books about Emily Dickinson. Bingham's education as well as her professional life as a teacher of French and as a geographer, particularly of Peru, are thoroughly documented with correspondence, research notes, publications and other papers (1885-1929).
The papers are made up entirely of a combined logbook and journal, "Log of a cruise in the U.S. Gunboat 'Port Royal'." Included in the journal is Charles William Bishop's account of the sinking of the Cumberland by the Merrimac, together with poetry, newspaper clippings, and other papers about the battle.
Correspondence, writings and travel journals kept during Edwin Munsell Bliss's travels in the Near East while an agent for the American Bible Society in the Levant (1872-1888). His writings are devoted to his travels, and letters from family and friends also describe their experiences as missionaries living and traveling in the Near East. Also included is the will of Bliss's first wife, Marie Louise Henderson Bliss.
A journal, short essays and notes, and fourteen letters written by Harvey Harris Bloom to members of his family and friends. The letters describe his life while he was teaching at an academy in Millington, New Jersey and his student years at Yale College (1859-1861) before he enlisted in the Union army. Bloom's journal as well as his writings are largely devoted to religious meditations, but also included are stories, poems, and disputes written while at Yale College.
