Material related to Frederick Morgan's family. Though consisting mostly of correspondence, these papers also include a range of other material associated with individual family members. For example, Morgan's son Seth published a novel, Homeboy, and his files include clippings of reviews for the book. The most extensive files in this series [relate to] Morgan's first wife, Constance, and to Morgan's mother, Marion Morgan. The correspondence between Morgan and his first wife runs to several hundred letters, and the two were particularly active correspondents during the period of Morgan's military service when they often wrote each other multiple letters in a single day. The files for Marion Morgan span a particularly long period, from 1930 to 1988, and contain extensive correspondence between her and her son in which they often discuss family news and events.
