Found in 8 Collections and/or Records:
An artificial collection of correspondence, advertisements, brochures, broadsides, newspapers, magazines, posters, programs, printed material, and miscellanea relating to American life and culture, ca.1824-1952.
The collection consists of illustrated 19th century trade cards (small printed cards, bearing tradesmen’s advertisements and including an illustration); early 20th century advertising cards which were distributed by merchants or manufacturers to advertise or promote their business or product; and a small number of collecting cards.
A collection of objects and packaging for commercial products celebrating the United States Bicentennial in 1976. These items were assembled as a course project for Jesse Lemisch's American Studies class at SUNY/Buffalo in the spring of 1976 and exhibited in 1976 and 1977. Included in the collection are catalogues of the exhibitions as well as related correspondence and photographs.
The papers are made up almost entirely of scrapbooks assembled by Henry Sherman, his wife and four of his children. The scrapbooks offer vivid documentation of their lives in the period 1850-1900 in Washington, D.C. with correspondence, photographs, drawings, clippings and memorabilia of all kinds.
