Detailed Description of the Collection

 

Series 1.  Research Materials 1791-2001

Scope and Content Note

This series is comprised of research notes and materials compiled by Schaelchlin for the purpose of creating a published work on the Scripps family. It begins with chronologically arranged materials comprised solely of the author’s research notes. Most notes contain quotes from researched sources placed into context by the author. Other notes provide information on specific materials and source locations (where to retrieve more information, what other resources should be investigated, etc.). These files are followed by chronologies produced by Schaelchlin (with dates ranging from 1619 to 1992), briefly recording Scripps family births, deaths, marriages, inheritances, occupations, and business dealings, as well as more generalized research materials including the author’s “to do” lists, checked sources, questions to self regarding her findings, etc. These materials in particular shed light on Schaelchlin’s biographical perspective.
The series is arranged chronologically and by subject.

Subseries 1.1. E.W. Scripps 1844-1999

Scope and Content Note

This subseries contains biographical information on E.W. (Edward Willis) Scripps, including source materials found in the Vance H. Trimble Collection of research materials on E.W. Scripps. Materials from 1873-1889 are comprised of the Schaelchlin’s notes together with photocopies of source materials— mostly of letters to E.W.’s sister, Julia Anne “Annie” Scripps. These items recount his travels, health concerns, his feelings on becoming a reporter, his business abilities, and his desire to find a wife. Later correspondence is comprised of letters between family and associates that offer an account of Scripps’s marriage to Nackie Holtsinger, their children and his in-laws, his growing empire, and the disagreements with his brother James that led to a permanent rift by 1891. The subseries also contains several files of business related correspondence.

Subseries 1.5.  James E. (Edmund) Scripps 1840-1998

Scope and Content Note

This subseries contains information on James Edward Scripps, brother of E.W. and Ellen Scripps et al. A respected newspaper publisher in his own right, he began not as a journalist but a school teacher (though very little of this portion of his life is covered here). The bulk of this subseries concentrates on his founding of the Detroit News and his turbulent relationship with E.W. Scripps as evidenced in correspondence and probate documents regarding George H. Scripps. Schaelchlin biographical notes rely heavily on the diary entries of James E. Scripps as well as the research of Cyril Arthur Player. Diary entries from 1858-59 are not complete but written in his own hand. Information on newspapers begun by James Scripps have been retained in this subseries as originally intended by Schaelchlin. Other materials related to his newspaper career and contributions may be found in the Newspaper Business subseries.
