Mothers and sons
Found in 11 Collections and/or Records:
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.
The papers document aspects of the life and career of Norton Nicholls, especially his Grand Tour (1770-1773), his friendships, and his family relationships. Major correspondents include Jane Floyer Nicholls, Karl von Bonstetten, Thomas Gray, John Minifie, and Thomas David Boswell.
The Norton Nicholls Correspondence collection contains letters the British clergyman received from friends and acquaintances, and letters he wrote to a close friend, the poet Thomas Gray, and to his mother Jane Floyer Nicholls. Also present is Nicholls's short "Prayer to be use before inoculation" and two letters from Sir Horace Mann to unidentified recipients.
The papers consist of letters from Helene Novikoff to her son Boris, while he was employed by the Gold Coast Selection Trust Limited, a gold mining company, in West Africa. The almost daily letters, written in Russian by Helene Novikoff from her home in England, concern her health, finances, and routine activities.
The papers consist of letters written to Henry C. Robinson and members of his family. The largest group is made up of over sixty letters written to him by his mother, Anne Seymour Robinson, while he was at Yale College (1850-1853) and which reflect on events and activities at the college. Other correspondents are Mary Caroline Robinson Shipman and Lewis Ledyard Weld.
