The Clara H. Haraden papers are
a collection of correspondence between members of the Haraden family.
Scope and Content Note
The Clara H. Haraden papers are a collection of correspondence between members of
the Haraden family. The majority of the correspondence is from Ann (Annie) Hammond
to Clara. However, there is also a significant amount of correspondence to her other
sisters and parents while she traveled through East Asia with her husband. At the
end of the correspondence is a miscellaneous folder, which contains loose pages of
correspondence without identifying information; also included in this folder is a
calling card. This collection also contains a recipe book with handwritten recipes
and news clippings; the book appears to have been someone's account book at one
time, the first few pages displaying account records from 1846.
Clara H. Haraden was born in about 1843 in Salem,
Massachusetts, to Andrew Haraden Jr. (1811-1877) and his wife Augusta Obear. The
Haradens had seven children (including Clara) who survived into adulthood: Ann
(Annie) Hammond, Fannie, Sarah Elizabeth, Andrew, Mary Jane, and Grace. Andrew
Haraden Jr. made a number of trips to Calcutta before becoming a package express-man
between Salem and Boston. Clara's date of death is unavailable.
