Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Description:

The collection consists of 74 volumes of diaries, letters, reports, reminiscences, and other writings in typescript form, accompanied by clippings, photographs, designs, and memorabilia, which Remey prepared in a limited number of sets. Included are his daily diaries (1940-1948) as well as separate journals kept during his travels in South America (1945-1946), Latin America (1946-1947), and Europe (1947-1948) as a teacher and representative of the Baha'i faith. There are also volumes of Remey's architectural designs and text for the Baha'i temple to be built on Mt. Carmel in Israel, and letters and reports concerning Baha'i activities.

Remey also prepared many volumes of reminiscences--of his childhood, boyhood at the Navy Yard, Washington, D. C., and school at Green Acres, Maine, and of his uncles William Butler Remey and Edward Wallace Remey, father George Collier Remey (1841-1928), and Gertrude Heim Remey. Also included are biographies of Charles Mason (1804-1882), who was chief justice of Iowa, George Collier Remey, and Mary Josephine Remey; histories of the houses in which Remey family members lived; a record of the naval destroyer U.S.S. Remey, named after George Collier Remey; and a description of a new mausoleum in Virginia for the Remey family designed by Remey.
