Norman White Cary papers

Overview: The papers consist of letters exchanged between Norman White Cary and his mother and sister during his four years at Yale College. The letters provide a detailed record of his life as a student with accounts of studies, finances, social and cultural events, and life in New Haven. His mother's letters are intensely solicitous of Cary's physical and moral well-being, but also describe family happenings and social life in Philadelphia where she was head of a school for young ladies.
