Abstract:

Correspondence, genealogical data, family histories, diaries, scrapbooks, photographs, art works, wills, and other materials relating to librarian and local historian (Marine-on-St. Croix, Minn.) James Taylor Dunn, his family, and the following collateral families: Curran, Garrett, Grigg, Hall, Langford, Monfort, Sweeting, Taylor, and Bach. Members of the Dunn, Monfort, Langford, and Taylor families emigrated to Minnesota from New York State and Pennsylvania in the 1850s and 1860s. The collection contains a wealth of information on the activities of upper middle class, well-educated, well-traveled families, articulate in describing their lives and activities, and aware of family history and background.

Sections of particular interest are those containing the papers of Elizabeth Taylor, daughter of U.S. Consul (Winnipeg) James Wickes Taylor, who left many detailed letters, diaries and art work describing her Canadian and European travels, especially in the Faroe Islands.

The papers of John Warner Grigg Dunn, his wife Alice Monfort Dunn, and their three sons, John, Jr., Montfort, and James Taylor, constitute the major component of the collection. There are diaries, scrapbooks, photographs, and correspondence detailing the family's European travels; hunting, fishing, and outdoor life in Pennsylvania and Minnesota; John Jr.'s and James Taylor's World War II service; and the family's lifelong interest in the preservation of the St. Croix River Valley (Minn. and Wis.) area. Also included are literary manuscripts, correspondence, artwork, and other papers relating to the "Globe" magazine, which was edited and published by John, Jr. and his two brothers (1937-1941). There are letters and manuscripts from such authors as Ludwig Bemelmans, Ezra Pound, and Henry Miller.
