Abstract:

Papers and photographs documenting several generations of the Atwood, Ormsby and Green families from the 1850s through the 1950s and also documenting the family's estate, Bonnie Oaks (Marquette County, Wis.), that served as an informal artist's retreat during the 1920s and early 1930s.

Papers include genealogical materials, legal documents, correspondence, subject files, news clippings, published works, daily diaries of Alma Atwood and John Whitney Ormsby (1862-1866), and one blueprint of Bonnie Oaks (1924). The correspondence, subject files, and photographs comprise the majority of the collection. The bulk of the correspondence dates from the 1850s-1890s and is generally between family members, with a large number of outgoing letters from Alma Atwood Ormsby to her parents, Joshua Atwood and Rosina Willson Atwood, and to her husband, John Whitney Ormsby. Correspondence from the 1920s-1930s contains exchanges between members of the Green family including Eleanor Green (Piel), Katherine Green, and Mildred Ormsby Green, and the artists who visited Bonnie Oaks, such as Robert Fitzgerald, Zona Gale, Margery Latimer (Toomer), Joseph and Rosina Lhevinne, William Maxwell, Frantz Proschowski, Paul and Eslanda Robeson, and Jean Toomer.

The bulk of the photographs consist of images of various family members both individually and in groups. There are also photographs of visitors to Bonnie Oaks and images of the structures and grounds of the estate.

The processed portion of this collection is summarized above, dates 1853-1998, and is described in the register. Additional photographic accessions date 1897-1947 and are described below.
