John Van Antwerp MacMurray's family correspondence includes correspondence with his parents Junius Wilson MacMurray and Henrietta Van Antwerp MacMurray, his sisters Edna and Ethel and their spouses, as well as his wife Lois, and his children Joan, Frank and Lois ("Bisi"). In addition, the subseries includes correspondence with his grandfather John H. Van Antwerp (1823-1903) and other members of the Van Antwerp family, as well as with his father-in-law Frank J. Goodnow and his wife, and other members of the Goodnow family. The files are alphabetically arranged, with maiden names used for the female members of the family, unless the correspondence started after they married. The majority of the series consists of the correspondence between John Van Antwerp MacMurray and his father Junius Wilson MacMurray, who died in 1898, and his mother Henrietta Van Antwerp MacMurray. The correspondence with both his parents documents MacMurray's life at boarding school in New Jersey (Captain Wilson's Collegiate Institute at Newton 1891-1895 and Lawrenceville School 1895-1898), which is supplemented by Junius Wilson's correspondence with the headmasters of both institutes (Subseries 2A).
