1709-2017 (bulk: 1776-1952)
Creator:
Biddle family.
Extent: 14.5 linear feet (32 boxes)
The Biddle family has a long history on American land with Quaker ancestors emigrating in 1681 and settling in Philadelphia around 1725. This collection documents the family relationships, and to a lesser extent, the work and military service of six generations of one branch of that family, starting with Clement Biddle (1740-1814), and following the descendants of two of his sons: Thomas Alexander Biddle (1776-1857) and Clement Cornell Biddle (1784-1855). These papers tell the stories, to varying degrees, of more than 30 individual Biddle family members through correspondence, financial records, professional papers, diaries, scrapbooks, and photographs.

1712-1914
Creator:
Rosengarten, J. G., (Joseph George), 1835-1921, Creator
Extent: 1.5 linear feet (3 boxes, 1 slip-case)
J.G. Rosengarten (1835-1921) was a Philadelphia lawyer, philanthropist, and history enthusiast with special interests in the role of German and French individuals in the development of and early wars of the United States. He wrote several books and articles on these subjects, and in the course of his research assembled the eponymous collection. The collection will likely be of interest to scholars, particularly those studying the American Revolutionary War and German involvement on both the British and American sides, and French and German foreign relations at the end of the 18th century.

circa 1850s
Extent: 0.2 linear feet (1 box)
Little is known about John the Scribe who "mediated" this collection of handwritten drafts for "Days of Judgement for Needy Times." The work describes the author's dismay at a soi-disant "enlightened" society's lack of adherence to fixed principles; its vaunted progress he views as mere haste, travel without aim and activity without achievement. The collection includes three drafts of the work.
