John de Courcy, the first Anglo-Norman conqueror of Ulster, was perhaps the most famous member of the powerful Courcy family. Lords and warriors, conquerors and administrators, the Courcys epitomize the Anglo-Norman elite and their impact on Britain and Ireland during the 11th and 12th centuries. This book traces the family's history.

Papers of Booth, an abolitionist, politician, lecturer, publisher, businessman, and government clerk, primarily materials relating to the family of Mary Corss Booth, his second wife. Most of the correspondence was addressed to Booth's mother-in-law, Adeline P. Corss, of Hartford, Connecticut, or to Booth's daughters, school teachers Mary Ella and Lillian May Booth who resided with Mrs. Corss and for many years were estranged from their father. Included are ca. 145 letters written by Booth and many from Mary Booth discussing Booth's imprisonment and other troubles over his abolitionist activities. Between 1870 and 1890, the Booth sisters received six letters from the Reverend J. J. Enmegahbauh, the first Native American ordained by Bishop Jackson Kemper, written from the White Earth Indian Reservation in Minnesota. Also included are several diaries kept by Corss family members; Lillian's school notebooks; an account book kept by John Kirk, a relative of the third Mrs. Booth; and an 1865 record of soldiers' medical exams for pension applications. Also in the collection are copies of correspondence, 1849-1864, from the Booth papers and the S. P. Chase papers at the Library of Congress; and genealogical information and photo stats of pictures of family members removed from the McCormick Collection at the SHSW. (Blanch Booth Angster, daughter of Sherman Booth, was secretary to Anita McCormick Blaine.)
