Highlights of the

William Henry Harrison Monroe Collection

The William Henry Harrison Monroe Collection contains letters to and from WHH Monroe during and just before the Civil War. Monroe, with his brothers Eugene Bronson Monroe, John Quincy Adams Monroe, James Madison Monroe, and sister Sarah Monroe attended the Western Reserve Eclectic Institute (now Hiram College). There are 11 letters as well as Monroe's discharge papers, the outline of a family tree (which can be found only in the physical collection), and a copy of the obituary of Victor Garfield Monroe.

Displayed here are several of the more visually interesting portions of the Collection. A finding aid for this collection can be found here.
