Codman family papers

Item Information

Title:
Codman family papers
Description:
The Codman family papers reflect the personal, social, and professional lives of the Codman family of Lincoln, Massachusetts. The papers are a major resource for the study of New England family history, domestic relationships, changing patterns of taste and consumption, mercantile and shipping activities, and the evolution of the Codman country estate ("the Grange") from the late-eighteenth century to the mid-twentieth century. Members of the Codman family conscientiously retained and preserved documents and artifacts of their own and of previous generations, resulting in a vast assemblage of family papers which now make up this collection. The collection includes the papers of twenty-six. One of the many highlights of the Codman family papers is the correspondence between author Edith Wharton and Ogden Codman, Jr. Wharton and Codman were close friends, and they co-authored the influential work, The Decoration of Houses. See series level descriptions for individual biographies and scope and content notes.
