Series XIV. Personal Memorabilia

1 1/2 boxes.

Although the majority of the Mumfords' personal papers remain at their house, they have donated some items to the collection. These can be grouped in essentially two categories. One pertains to folders of items that relate to a personal interest or phase of his life, such as garden diagrams and college memorabilia. The other group contains single miscellaneous items that have been placed in folders by decade. This series is probably strongest in items from Mumford's high school career.
