Parker Family letters by Calvin Joseph Parker( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Parker Family Collection includes manuscript letters, photograph albums, papers and ephemera, scrapbooks and realia. Notably, the collections provides 43 Civil War letters written by Calvin Joseph Parker to his mother and sisters. C.J. Parker served in the 123rd Regiment of New York Volunteers in the Union Army and the letters range in date from January 1862 to April 1865. The bulk of the letters are written from Virginia, but he also moved with his regiment through Maryland, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia. Remaining letters in the collection are from family and friends to Caroline Parker (mother), 1838-1869, to Carrie Parker (sister), 1867-1908 and Marietta Parker (sister), 1879-1890. The papers and ephemera relate to the Parker family and their friends. The three photograph albums have little identification but two are likely Parker relatives, the third entitled "Bermuda, 1925". The four scrapbooks include: one of the Parker family and relatives, 1910s-1970s; one compiled by John Earle Parker (son of C.J. Parker) highlighting his foreign service in Venezuela in 1903; and two compiled by Middlebury College alumnae: Alice Warren Brooks, C.1901, and Elizabeth Burditt Parker [Andrews], C.1930. The realia includes a mandolin from Caroline Burditt Parker, C.1903 and a porcelain hors d'oeuvre tray with Delta Upsilon insignia, owned by John Earle Parker, C.1901
