Extent: 2.5 linear feet
The Zieget Shaker Collection Papers underscore Irene and Julius Zieget's reliance on members of the Shaker community in acquiring hundreds of samples of their art and crafts. Correspondence dating from 1929 to 1968 and a journal illustrated with photographs document the Ziegets' interaction with a number of Shaker sisters and eldresses, particularly Sister Marguerite Frost of Canterbury, NH. The papers also include some of the Ziegets' acquisitions--nineteenth- and early twentieth-century manuscript material. Included here are records of deaths, recipes and other household instructions along with spiritual messages, blessings and hymns all recorded neatly in the distinctive and decorative Shaker hand. A scrapbook Irene Zieget compiled of printed material dating from 1881 to 1960 includes published writings by Shakers as well as numerous newspaper and magazine articles and advertisements that chronicle the public's interest in the Shaker lifestyle and aesthetic.

1794-1799
Extent: 1 folder
In 1793, the yellow fever epidemic gripped Philadelphia, followed by smaller outbreaks in 1794, 1797, and 1798. Over 5,000 residents died during the first outbreak. At this time, the nation's capital was located in Philadelphia. To avoid the "universal terror," George Washington and Congress fled the city for the outlying suburbs. However, most residents did not have the means to re-locate. Benjamin Rush (1746-1813), a Philadelphia physician, refused to abandon the city. Rush believed the outbreak stemmed from Philadelphia's unsanitary conditions and rotting vegetables. He performed bloodletting procedures on infected patients, curing about 6,000 people. While Rush was adamant that he had identified the origins of the disease and developed its panacea, it would be another century until the epidemic was linked to a mosquito bite, and a half-century more until a cure was developed. African Americans also played a vital role in attending to the sick. African Americans were believed to be immune from the disease and were recruited as nurses, cart drivers, coffin makers, and grave diggers. Absalom Jones, founder of the African Methodist Episcopal Church in Philadelphia, was among the notable African Americans who assisted during the epidemic. The doctors and volunteers observed the illness's rapid effects on an infected person: perfect health one day was shrouded in death the next. The illness was marked by fever, chills, vomiting, diarrhea, and yellow skin. And with the high death rate among adults, just as many children were left orphaned as a result. Many sustainable innovations derived out of the aftermath of the yellow fever tragedy. The city built hospitals and orphanages and enacted laws to improve sanitary conditions in the streets. To follow up on these public's health initiatives, famed architect Benjamin Latrobe designed the nation's first municipal water system in Philadelphia. Philadelphia's yellow fever epidemic is now attributed to several key factors: the mosquito bite carrying yellow fever originates in the tropical and sub-tropical regions of South America and Africa. In 1793, thousands of infected refugees, revolting against their French occupied colony of Saint Domingue (present-day Haiti), sailed to Philadelphia and landed at the docks. This, in addition to Philadelphia's hot humid summer and low water tables, generated the ideal conditions for mosquitos. Eventually, the epidemic dwindled down as the colder weather eradicated the mosquitos. The Yellow Fever Epidemic Correspondence contains four letters dating from 1794 to 1799. While the letters were written by several different authors, the uneasiness cloaking Philadelphia during the yellow fever epidemic in the 1790s is well-represented throughout all the letters. The authors' observe not only the loss of friends and family, but also the outbreak's stressful impact on business partnerships and family relationships. The collection will be of interest to researchers interested in first-hand accounts of the yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia during the 1790s and the business pursuits of merchants during this time period.

In 1793, the yellow fever epidemic gripped Philadelphia, followed by smaller outbreaks in 1794, 1797, and 1798. Over 5,000 residents died during the first outbreak. At this time, the nation's capital was located in Philadelphia. To avoid the "universal terror," George Washington and Congress fled the city for the outlying suburbs. However, most residents did not have the means to re-locate. Benjamin Rush (1746-1813), a Philadelphia physician, refused to abandon the city. Rush believed the outbreak stemmed from Philadelphia's unsanitary conditions and rotting vegetables. He performed bloodletting procedures on infected patients, curing about 6,000 people. While Rush was adamant that he had identified the origins of the disease and developed its panacea, it would be another century until the epidemic was linked to a mosquito bite, and a half-century more until a cure was developed. African Americans also played a vital role in attending to the sick. African Americans were believed to be immune from the disease and were recruited as nurses, cart drivers, coffin makers, and grave diggers. Absalom Jones, founder of the African Methodist Episcopal Church in Philadelphia, was among the notable African Americans who assisted during the epidemic. The doctors and volunteers observed the illness's rapid effects on an infected person: perfect health one day was shrouded in death the next. The illness was marked by fever, chills, vomiting, diarrhea, and yellow skin. And with the high death rate among adults, just as many children were left orphaned as a result. Many sustainable innovations derived out of the aftermath of the yellow fever tragedy. The city built hospitals and orphanages and enacted laws to improve sanitary conditions in the streets. To follow up on these public's health initiatives, famed architect Benjamin Latrobe designed the nation's first municipal water system in Philadelphia. Philadelphia's yellow fever epidemic is now attributed to several key factors: the mosquito bite carrying yellow fever originates in the tropical and sub-tropical regions of South America and Africa. In 1793, thousands of infected refugees, revolting against their French occupied colony of Saint Domingue (present-day Haiti), sailed to Philadelphia and landed at the docks. This, in addition to Philadelphia's hot humid summer and low water tables, generated the ideal conditions for mosquitos. Eventually, the epidemic dwindled down as the colder weather eradicated the mosquitos. The Yellow Fever Epidemic Correspondence contains four letters dating from 1794 to 1799. While the letters were written by several different authors, the uneasiness cloaking Philadelphia during the yellow fever epidemic in the 1790s is well-represented throughout all the letters. The authors' observe not only the loss of friends and family, but also the outbreak's stressful impact on business partnerships and family relationships. The collection will be of interest to researchers interested in first-hand accounts of the yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia during the 1790s and the business pursuits of merchants during this time period.
