Found in 2 Collections and/or Records:
Eleanore Price Mather (1910-1985) was a Quaker writer and editor from Rose Valley, Pennsylvania. She was the daughter of Walter Ferris and Felicia Thomas Price. She married Robert Worrell Mather and was a member of Providence Monthly Meeting. This collection contains primarily papers concerning Eleanore Price Mather's book, lectures, and articles on the Quaker painter, Edward Hicks.
The collection is composed of two family scrapbooks and acid-free copies. In 1894-1895, James M. Price researched information and correspondence concerning the time his aunt and uncle, Philip and Matilda Price, spent in the utopian community of New Harmony, Indiana, 1825-1826. Copies and some of his original correspondence were mounted into an old account book. In 1929, Susanna M. Price, his daughter, compiled a scrapbook containing family history, reminiscences, and photographs.
