Found in 5 Collections and/or Records:
Letters from Nesbitt Chambers to his brother John (Jack) Chambers, especially (1890s) in regard to the situation in Turkey ("we are living over a volcano") and a "scheme" to help Armenians emigrate to Canada. Includes one written in congratulations to Jack's daughter Marjorie regarding her first vote, cast to make Ontario "dry" -- WNC writes that he has "never had the privilege of casting a vote" (1921 Jul), and one re "Yoljuluk," his memoir (1929 Jul).
Kate Seelye's taped reminiscences (probably based on interviews with her daughter Dorothea S. Franck) divided into six files of transcripts. Transcripts have been made into PDFs. The material documents Kate's childhood in Erzerum and Adana, including people she knew and historical events that happened there.
