Albert Leffingwell Collection, 1838-1916 12 linear feet
Leffingwell, Albert, 1845-1916
The Albert Leffingwell Collection was originally well preserved and well organized by Leffingwell himself. The correspondence and other documents reveal the state of animal rights and mental healthcare in the U.S. in the Victorian era. The scope of the collection is wide, ranging from some early settlement claims in Aurora, NY to the grounds eye view of the Russian Revolution of 1905 and the persecution of Jews in Warsaw.
