 Collection
Identifier: HC.MC-975-07-103

Scope and Contents

This collection is comprised of the single volume typed autobiography or memoir of Ruth Abbott Rogers. Rogers structured the manuscript to act as a tour of the family home, called Quillity, outside of Philadelphia. In Roger's words, "I will start at the top of the house under the slate roof and wander down room by room going over the accumulation of a family from colonial times in America." The manuscript therefore acts as both an autobiography of Roger's own life in the house, and as a family history.
