Abstract:

The George Nelson Allen family papers contain correspondence, diaries, journals, hymn books, music scores, certificates, and photographs. The files document the private lives of the Allen family, as well as George N. Allen's teaching career at Oberlin College. The bulk of the collection consists of correspondence of George N. Allen, his wife Caroline Mary Rudd, and daughters Carrie and Alice Allen, as well as a representative number of letters from the Rudd-Deforest families. Included are courtship letters between George N. Allen and his future wife, and letters from Sally Rudd urging her niece Caroline Mary Rudd to study at Oberlin College. The letter also tells much about the household of Asa Mahan, Oberlin's first president. Other files highlight George N. Allen's teaching career at Oberlin College, music writing abilities, and geological expeditions to Jamaica (1863-1864) and Yellowstone Park (1871).
