Collection correspondence of Marjorie Lemon Perryman and family, beginning with that of her parents, Joseph B. (Ben) and Annette Lemon, and continuing after her marriage to Clifton E. Perryman. Throughout the late nineteenth to mid-twentieth century span of the items here, the Lemons and Perrymans lived in eastern Washington. As a whole, the correspondence creates a profile of a rural woman, a school teacher, and her family.
Collection of more than one hundred items, predominantly letters. Many are associated with the legal and mining business interests of Emerson J. Short, others with the Haskell family, and a handful of others associated with neither Short nor the Haskells. All items share a Denver, Colorado, origin. Besides being of interest to researchers in mining finance, those investigating women's roles in early twentieth century America may also plumb this collection for the letters to and from women recruited as stock agents for a western mining company in New York, as well as other cities, and for the profiles of two never-married sisters who were Denver school teachers.
