Dodge, Starin, and Wistar Family papers

 Collection
Identifier: HC.MC-950-056

Scope and Contents

While it is clear that Edward M. Wistar (1852-1941) and his wife Margaret Collins Wistar (1853-1937) were Quakers, there is no information on the Dodge, White, or Starin families, nor has any connection between the Wistars with the other families been established. Nonetheless, this collection has been classified as a Quaker collection, based on the Wistar connection.

The primary letter writer is Mary A. Dodge White in the mid-19th century offering advice and thoughts on various topics. There is an interesting account of her trip to Europe in the 1860s recorded in the diary of Grace White Starin. The earliest of the letter writers is Sarah Cleveland Dodge. Authors also include Edward and Margaret C. Wistar.
