Abstract:

Correspondence, newspaper clippings, personal papers, photographs, Genevieve's scrapbook, and souvenir items from McAuliffe, Grace and Genevieve Brown covering the time period of 1918-1972, with the bulk of the items from 1923 to 1932.

The papers contain correspondence from the three Brown children to their mother. A few photographs and a small journal kept by McAuliffe includes some details of his experiences on the front lines in World War I. There are numerous individual and group photographs of the three all-girl orchestras that Grace and Genevieve performed with - Harry Waiman and the Debutantes, the Parisian Red Heads and the Ingenues. Letters and postcards sent home provide details of their travels. Numerous travel photographs, postcards and other ephemera collected while the Brown sisters were on tour are also included, and the scrapbook contains many clippings with reviews of their performances.
