Arthur D. Benson Genealogical Notes and Correspondence Concerning Egbert Benson and the Benson Family
Description: Almost half of the collection consists of letters (primarily typewritten) addressed by Mr. Benson to Richard B. Sealock, Archives at Queens Library Head. These are dated 1938 for the most part and describe some of the researches made by Benson concerning his famous forbearer, as well as some of his efforts to see that the historical marker was placed. Some letters make mention of a few photographs or other items concerning the Benson family donated to the Library. These photographs are probably the same ones which are included in this collection.
