COLLECTION TITLE AND NUMBER: Dockweiler Family Collection. CSLA-13ACCESSION NUMBERS: 2000.37; 2007.58COLLECTION SIZE: 3 archival document boxes; 2 oversize boxes
This part of the Dockweiler Collection consists of clippings, photographs, ledgers, ephemera, and miscellany such as correspondence. The dates of the materials range from 1919 to 1973. Internal evidence suggests that Frederick and Mary Dockweiler collected some of the materials, although their exact provenance is unknown, which resulted in the division of the Dockweiler material into two separate holdings (for the other see, Dockweiler Family Collection, 1827-1996. CSLA-12). Holdings of research value in this collection include ephemera from the political campaigns of John and Isidore Dockweiler, such as campaign placards; and the clippings containing information on the 1926 Isidore Dockweiler Democratic primary run for the senatorial nomination (see Box 1, Folder 9. Box 1ov, Folder 3). The ledgers in Boxes 2 and 3 functioned as John H. Dockweiler's account and date books. Some of the clippings in Box 1ov duplicate those found in CSLA-12 of the Dockweiler Family Collection.
The content and arrangement of the holdings of CSLA-13 are described below in the following box and folder list, the different parts of which can be accessed by selecting the following titles:
