Carpenter, Edmund N., letters, 1897-1921

 File — Box: 1
Accession: 2159
Scope and Contents:

Begins with a trip to Cuba and Central America in 1897. The descriptions of Alaska are somewhat fuller, and there are many letters from Thomas Lloyd ("Gooney") Henry, a companion on the Alaska venture who remained prospecting in Alaska and Siberia, often under extreme conditions, for many years afterward. There are also descriptions of camp life during the Spanish-American War and a report to S. D. Warriner on the Labrador expedition. The letters continue beyond the period covered by the diaries to include Carpenter's trips to England and Chile on behalf of DuPont. There are a number of letters from female friends, one of whom, Marion Sadlein-Jackson, gives some description of home front life in England during and immediately after World War I.
