History

Biography:

Ellen Perry (1902-1981) was a resident of St. Louis, Michigan, who worked as a feature writer. Most of her articles on the past and present happenings in Gratiot County were printed in The Saginaw News. She was a member of First United Methodist Church, St. Louis. Copies of two of her books about St. Louis are housed in the Clarke: St. Louis, Michigan: the “Middle-of-the-Mitten City” (1976) and 100 years: St. Louis Centennial, 1853-1953 (1953), which she edited.


Collection Scope and Content Note

The collection is divided by format into papers and then scrapbooks. The papers are organized chronologically. This is a collection of Ellen Perry’s personal and professional papers, scrapbooks, articles, and correspondence. Five scrapbooks include her articles from August 21, 1969 to May 1981. Another scrapbook contains newspaper obituaries and wedding announcements circa 1893-1903, apparently from the St. Louis weekly newspaper, The Independent. Also included are photographs, negatives, church programs, correspondence, stories, and miscellaneous. Some of the stories concern her son, Mearle. The bulk of the collection, however, is the typewritten “Manuscripts” for her submissions to newspapers, which are arranged chronologically. Stories on various subjects are arranged topically.

Processing Note: Scrapbook #9 (Formerly #6) was a part of the original collection. However, when the collection was reprocessed in 2001, it could not be located.
