Series III: Robins Family Papers

Scope and Contents note

Series III is a collection of papers that enable one to study the close and intricate network of family relationships that formed Elizabeth Robins's earliest environment, and many of them have annotations in Robins's hand. It provides interesting case studies of the family, education (especially of women), religion, and business enterprise in the nineteenth century. The Robins family also served as models for plots and characters in Elizabeth Robins's novels, e.g. The Open Question (published in 1898), "Rocky Mountain Journal", and "Theodora, or The Pilgrimage". There is abundant information, covering a century and a half, on the history of an American family. Raymond Robins's letters can be found in Series IV: Raymond Robins and Margaret Dreier Robins.

Subseries A-G are arranged chronologically. Correspondence with Elizabeth Robins is at the beginning of each subseries, followed by General Correspondence, Business Correspondence and/or personal items such as notebooks, essays, etc. Correspondence is arranged alphabetically; diaries and letterpress books by chronology. The extreme diversity of material in this series complicates uniform arrangement and description.

Subseries A: Jane H. Robins, 1814-1885

Scope and Contents note

Subseries A consists of the papers, mainly correspondence, of Jane Hussey Robins (JHR). JHR was Robin's paternal grandmother, and appears to have been the dominant female influence on the young Elizabeth Robins; in Robins's words, her "touchstone." Robins would later dedicate an edition of The Open Question to her.

Subseries B: Charles E. Robins, 1836-1893

Scope and Contents note

Subseries B consists of the papers of Charles Ephraim Robins (1832-1893), and makes up the bulk of Series III. CER was an entrepreneur, a scientist, and politico-religionist. He also wrote and lectured on social issues such as prohibition. CER's papers include extensive business correspondence, which documents his ventures in real estate, insurance, banking, manufacturing, and assaying. In 1875, CER went to the territory of Colorado as an assayer for the Little Annie Gold Mining Company. His office was located at Summit in Rio Grande County, from which he also observed and reported on weather conditions for the United States Army. In 1880 Robins visited him at Summit, just as she would later visit her brothers on the gold fields of Alaska in 1900. CER wrote to his family about the West, religion, God, women's rights, landscapes, the family, and events of the day.

Subseries B also contains consistent runs of indexed letterpress books (outgoing) and letterbooks (incoming), in addition to 25 volumes of CER's personal diary.
