              1 · Collection · 1856-1969

              The Swisshelm collection contain letters, newspaper clippings, and photographs.

              Most notable are the letters. Most of the letters are copies and transcripts of the originals. These letters were written by Henry Z. Mitchell, Henry Swisshelm, and Jane Grey Swisshelm. The letters from Jane Swisshelm were written to the Mitchell family in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Jane Swisshelm’s younger sister, Elizabeth, was married to Henry Z. Mitchell. They were parents to William B. Mitchell, who would later become the St. Cloud State University resident director (1877-1901) to the Minnesota State College Board.

              There are two original Swisshelm letters, written in 1867 and 1883, both to the Mitchell family.

              The collection also contains journal articles and newspaper clippings, as well as a small number of images, including three portraits of Jane Swisshelm.
