The Alexander Hamilton Family collection spans the period from ca. 1895-1948 and primarily contains documents and photographs relating to the personal life and political career of Alexander M. Hamilton, the family and public life of his second wife, Elizabeth, and to a lesser degree the lives of Hamilton's siblings, Pierpont M. Hamilton, Helen M. Hamilton Woods, and Laurens Hamilton and his parents, William P. and Juliet Morgan Hamilton. Also included are some photographs, clippings and certificates relating to Elizabeth Hamilton's first two husbands, C. Egerton Warburton and John Wanamaker, Jr. The collection is divided into four series: Scrapbooks; Photograph Albums; Loose Photographs; and Certificates.
