Series I: Charles Richard Crane and John O. Crane Documents

The Crane family papers consist materials collected about Charles Crane in efforts to document his life and work. The personal papers of his son John Crane, dating mainly from the 1960's, are also included. While the Crane family papers held by the ICWA are a selective record of the family's activities, they offer an important glimpse into Charles and John Crane's philanthropic efforts, and their relationship with the ICWA.
