Biographical Information and Articles,  1850s-1994 [subseries]

Scope note: This subseries consists of clippings and articles, both contemporary and posthumous, containing biographical information on Norton Strange Townshend. Materials are arranged chronologically and shed light on the basic facts of Townshend’s life, as well as on his involvement in education, the suffrage movement in Ohio, and other reform pursuits. Of particular interest to researchers are the sketches written by family members (including Margaret Bailey Townshend, Harriet N. Townshend, and H. Percy Boynton), which reveal Townshend more intimately through recollections and impressions. Also of note are five folders of newspaper obituaries located at the end of the subseries.
