Abstract:

Collection divided into two series: general and vacation / travel; topics discussed include military service, travel, philately / stamp collecting, politics, mental health, and legal matters re family law (divorce, custody, etc.)

General series include items ca. 1920 to 2004; pre-1938 items document family of Daniel F. Boone's first wife, Martha Lightner Boone. Topics of note include correspondence about Martha's brother Theodore Alexander Lightner (1893-1982) and mental depression; siblings Clarence McGraw Lightner (b. 1903) and Alice Lightner Hopf (1904-1988) and their involvement in the Communist party; and estates of parents Clarence and Frances Lightner.

Extensive materials from 1938 through the end of the 1940s deal with divorce, child custody, and related proceedings of Daniel and Martha Boone, custody battle, and published court proceedings. Items from the 1950s and later deal with Daniel Boone and his career and include autographed photos of Harry Truman and Philippines President Carlos Romulo.

Includes extensive records of Boone's military service; papers from 1981-1982 provide a detailed record of the deaths of Boone's children, Daniel, in 1981, and Penny (Martha Penelope Boone) who committed suicide in 1982; includes police reports, suicide notes, etc.; also includes newspaper clippings and obituaries of family members.

Visual materials include photographs of son Daniel Lightner Boone from youth to young adulthood and wedding photographs of first wife Martha Lightner Boone; and an extensive collection of stamps, with examples from both the U.S. and foreign countries.

The vacation / travel series documents the years 1961 to 1973 and deals with travels of Daniel F. Boone and his second wife, Helen Huffman Boone. For each trip, there are photographs and an accompanying travel diary written by Helen H. Boone; places represented include countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America.
