Catharine Cary, Howard P. Wood and Caroline Wistar are some of our most recent “repeat donors,” donors who have given materials to Special Collections and then return with new gifts. For example, Catharine Cary has donated the Howard Haines Brinton and Anna S. C. Brinton papers, but has recently added to the collection with a notebook of some talks as well as some articles, all in manuscript form, by Howard Brinton. Howard Wood, donor of the Morris Wistar Wood papers. has most recently not only donated genealogical and photographic materials to add to the Wood papers, but also a copy of his new book about orchids that he has worked on for several decades, The Dendrobiums. Last in this selection is the most recent gift of Caroline Wistar (through whom we received the papers of a line of her forebears named Thomas Wistar) of such items as Wistar’s 1820 journal of a journey through the south with his copious commentaries on slavery and a daguerreotype of his horse, Norman. We are fortunate to have such donors and friends of our collections.
