The Pauline Cashman Condon Wedding Collection (MS059) includes letters, cards, photos, books, and other small objects related to her wedding with Freeman Condon, which took place in Newburyport, Massachusetts, on June 11, 1919.
Pauline Condon was born in 1892 in Massachusetts and knew Freeman long before the wedding. This collection is a great example of what a New England wedding looked like at the beginning of the twentieth century.
The Martha Codman Karolik Manuscript Collection (MS060) contains several objects related to the Codmans, a prestigious family of Massachusetts. Historic New England also holds the Codman Family Manuscript Collection, and operates the Codman Estate in Lincoln, Massachusetts. Daughter of John Amory Codman and Martha Codman, Martha Codman Karolik was a philanthropist and a great collector of American art. She became famous for donating her collection to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, a collection so big the MFA had to build a new wing to accommodate the works.
The collection comprises newspaper clippings; ephemera objects, such as railroad tickets, empty envelopes, an autograph book, and others; and books related to her collection of American art. The collection also includes the transcript of the court case that judged the validity of her father’s will.
