Hollister-Spencer family papers by Spencer (Family :( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The collection consists of material of the families of Rochesterians Harriet (Hollister) Spencer (1887-1962) and her husband Thomas G. Spencer (1884-1978). Included in the collection is correspondence the Spencers received from their two children Hollister (Holly) and Thomas. While Thomas was in Europe in 1934, he wrote numerous letters home to his parents. These often included the articles which he wrote about his travels in France, Germany, Poland, Russia, Portugal and Brussels. The following year, Holly spent the summer away and wrote home frequently. Other family related materials include a day book (1869-1887) of Sarah E. Hollister, poems written about individual family members, a catalogue of Harriet and Thomas Spencer's house belongings, and a list of Harriet Spencer's family silver pieces. There is also a scrap book (1880-1910) containing newspaper clippings of social notices and obituaries pertaining to the Hollisters, Spencers, Starks and Sibleys, along with other prose and poetry clippings. Another note book contains the obituaries of Mrs. George A. Hollister, and Emmet H. Hollister (October 6, 1853), and a memorial sermon by Rev. A. G. Hall (June 18, 1871). The collection also includes photographs of various members of the Weed, Barnes, Hollister and Spencer families. Other material in the collection relates to projects and organizations in which the Spencers were involved. Thomas Spencer spent many years attempting to verify the authenticity of a flag, the "Lincoln Flag", which was said to have belonged to Abraham Lincoln. The correspondence accumulated through this effort dates from 1955 to 1978. Harriet Hollister Spencer, in the 1930's, was a member of the Rochester branch of the Volunteer Knitting Section of the Needlework Guild of America. The collection contains various papers relating to the organization's program to knit clothes for needy children. Later, in the 1950's, Harriet Spencer became involved in the Rochester Rose Society and was active in such projects as the Herb Lecture Series (1952), a Rose Show and exhibit (1955), and the planting of an old fashioned historical rose garden at the Rochester Museum of Arts and Sciences (1956)
