The Cameron Family Papers consist primarily of the correspondence and writings
of former Princeton University professors Henry Clay Cameron (1827-1906) and his
son, A. Guyot Cameron (1864-1947), with some correspondence relating to Henry C.
Cameron's wife, Wilhelmina "Mina" Louise Cécile Chollet (1832-1908). There is also a
significant amount of Cameron family photographs as well as some documents, printed
matter, and ephemera relating to Princeton University. Famed Swiss-American
geologist, geographer, and Princeton professor Arnold Henry Guyot (1807-1884), a
relative of the Cameron family through marriage, is also represented in the
collection through classroom maps, correspondence, a journal, and printed articles
and lectures by and about Guyot. Most of the materials in the collection are
professional in nature.
