Subseries A. Family correspondence

1907-1954, n.d.

Scope and Content Note


Because the subjects of their letters often overlap, correspondence written by Kimball and by Marie, while in separate folders, are grouped together by recipient so that Kimball's letters to his father, arranged chronologically, are followed by those written to Edwin by Marie. Letters to Ellen Kimball and to Theodora are similarly arranged. Letters addressed to both parents or to "family" are filed with Edwin Kimball correspondence. The file of Marie Kimball's letters to her husband precedes the third-party correspondence of Edwin and Theodora. The remaining files are arranged alphabetically, by relative's name, ending with a folder of "Other relatives."
