Series List


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.
