Lilly Library Manuscript Collections


The Dana mss., 1891-1898, consist of letters to Katherine (Dana) White, primarily from poet Amy Lowell, 1874-1925, as well as other members of the Lowell family - Anna (Parker) Lowell, Catherine B. Lowell, and Amy Lowell's childhood governess, Eliza A. May.

Also present are photographs and clippings relating to Katherine Dana's wedding to William Howard White in 1897, and lists of members, meetings, and rules of the Sewing Circle for 1891-92, 1892-93, and 1893-94. Three photographs of three women, who look to be mother and daughters (the Danas?) complete the collection.
