Scope and content
System of arrangement
Materials of this collection have been arranged into three series, ordered to roughly reflect the chronology of Babbitt's life beginning with her time at Emerson College in the late 1910s up through the early 1940s.
Series 01 contains five annotated plays by William Shakespeare, which Babbitt used during her theatre studies.
Series 02 consists of a World War I scrapbook of news clippings constructed while she was a student at Emerson, as well as a photograph album created for her sorority reunion in 1952.
Series 03 contains letters and objects Babbitt saved from her personal correspondence from acquaintances "Helen H." and former Emerson classmate Ethel May Duncan. While the majority of the documents were handwritten letters encased in the original postmarked envelopes, additional non-textual materials sometimes accompanied the letters, and have been divided into their own subseries.
