1906-1995
(Bulk: 1928-1958)
Extent: 9 linear feet
Marion Turner Stubbs Thomas, born in 1910, was a founding member of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated, which was founded in Philadelphia in 1938. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1930, and received a music degree from Zeckwer Hahn Conservatory of Music. Dr. John Patrick Turner was born November 1, 1885. He became a prominent and influential member of Philadelphia society, elected in 1935 as the first African American on the Philadelphia Board of Education, as well as achieving status as a respected physician and police surgeon. Dr. Frederick Douglass Stubbs was recognized as an extremely gifted chest surgeon and medical doctor. Dr. Stubbs was born in 1906 in Wilmington, Delaware, and attended Dartmouth University before graduating from Harvard University medical school. The Marion Turner Stubbs collection dates from 1906 to 1995, with bulk dates from 1928 to 1958. The collection consists of awards and certificates, journal article reprints (especially regarding tuberculosis and thoracic surgery), pamphlets, catalogs, correspondence, photographs, and family financial records. Although these records do not tell much about the lives of the family members, the medical research papers collected by Dr. Frederick Douglass Stubbs provide a snapshot of medicine in the 1930s, with a glimpse of the impact of the end of Prohibition and the introduction of the New Deal, especially regarding the socialization of medicine.

1904-2009
(Bulk: 1980-1994)
Extent: 10 linear feet
St. Peter Claver Roman Catholic Church of Philadelphia fills a unique position in the history of the Catholic Church in America. In 1886, African American Catholics from three local Philadelphia churches, having grown tired of the discrimination they faced at their home churches, united together as the Peter Claver Union with the goal of creating a ?Church for Colored Catholics? in Philadelphia. The organization was officially recognized by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia in 1889 and found a home for their parish in 1892 in the former Fourth Presbyterian Church located at 12th and Lombard Streets. Due to a perceived lack of continued need for an African American Catholic Church, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia suppressed the parish in 1985. The St. Peter Claver Roman Catholic Church records house the institutional records of the St. Peter Claver Roman Catholic Church of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This collection, which dates from 1904 to 2009, with bulk dates of 1980 to 1994, consists of records and materials evidencing the workings of the church and its community, primarily during the time of the suppression of the church by the Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia; the attempts of the members to reinstate the sacraments and parish status; and the challenges they faced in doing so.
