Abstract:

Consists of the correspondence, family papers, and items collected by George Alexander Ball, 1862-1955, his wife, Frances Emily (Woodworth) Ball, 1872-1958, and their daughter, Elisabeth Woodworth Ball, 1897-1982, of the Ball glass manufacturing family of Muncie, Indiana.

The correspondence covers various activities including the Ball family's contribution to World War I war orphans in Europe and the Indiana Boys School at Plainville, Indiana in 1920, Mr. Ball's interest in various subjects and literary works, and Miss Ball's children's book collection (many of which are now in the Lilly Library).

Additional materials include a journal of a trip to Panama in 1913, a child's school slate, glass lantern and rotary slides, Chinese cut-outs, and a photograph album documenting a turn-of-the-century railroad journey entitled "All Aboard for Colorado." There are notebooks containing catalogs of the Ball book collection and writings by Miss Ball including "The Child Discovers Its World Through Books of Travel," delivered at the University of Texas at Austin and printed in LIBRARY OCCURRENT in 1944.
