Josephine Wood Lowry papers
Scope and Contents
This collection consists of letters and poems written by various members of the Wood and Lowry families. Most of the letters were written to Josephine Wood Lowry of Tecumseh, Michigan. The bulk are from her mother, Sally Woods, her husband, S. B. Lowry, and her brother S. C. Woods. The letters pass on family news, describe daily life and social events, express the family's patriotism, and reminisce about pioneer life in Michigan and Minnesota. They also express an awe of the changes in life, especially in technology, in the last half of the 19th century.
