Description

Scope and Content

This collection consists of letters, manuscripts, documents, clipings, photographs, and printed items. The most significant part of this collection is the letters to Cecile Rose Lehman (Seligman) from her mother, as well as the letters from Harold Lehman to his grandfather. There are interesting items regarding Cecile's education and a variety of items having to do with the extended family. There is a album, compiled by Cecile of celebrated actors and musicials, and a odd volume titled "Thru the Rye with the Harold Lehmans" chronicling the before and after effects of alcohol (humorous).
