3Title:  Bartholomew & Michel family papers, c.1847-1913   
 Creator:  Bartholomew (Family) 
 Notes:  The collection includes correspondence between three generations of the Michel and Bartholomew families, ranging from 1847-1913. Both families were highly educated, literate, and interested in politics, which is apparent in many of their writings. The earliest letters were written by Mary Eletra Loveridge to Robert B. Michel during their courtship in 1847. Mary specifically writes of her interest in Emanuel Swedenborg, her religious disagreements with her mother, her loneliness and lack of female friends, of her love of books, and of multiple local deaths from cholera. Other courtship letters include those between Mary M. Michel and James Bartholomew in the early 1880s. James writes of Ben Butler (1884 Presidential nominee for the Greenback-Labor Party), his political disagreements with his father, his anxiousness to get married, and the need for him to travel to California as soon as possible. Later letters written to Mary after their marriage recount his 1893 travels through London, Paris, Vienna, and parts of Germany, as well as his return to the United States aboard the ship Alaska. Mary writes of her love of books, her thoughts on the 1884 election, and notes on a variety of friends and family members. In letters written from California to her sisters Annie and Elizabeth from 1884, Mary writes of her first impressions of California, reminiscences of their childhood, her first experience with an earthquake on April 19, 1885, the hardships of being a doctor's wife, and candid descriptions of neighbors and acquaintances. Later letters to her daughter Eleanor Bartholomew focus on family and community activities and the experiences of her son Robert. The collection also includes a long series of letters written from Eleanor Bartholomew to her brother Robert, both while she was at school in Brooklyn and when she was attending Bryn Mawr. In addition to notes on family and school acquaintances, Eleanor's letters cover a wide variety of topics, including descriptions of Brooklyn and her busy college schedule. Other notable items in the collection include a letter from William A. Michel to his brother Robert written in 1853 when William was traveling through Council Bluffs and Jefferson City aboard the Polar Star steamship on his way to California; a few photographs of Mary Michel Bartholomew, Mary Eleanor Bartholomew, and an unidentified Michel man; a cookbook kept by Robert Michel's sister Elizabeth Michel Blair probably in the 1830s and 1840s; and some Confederate printed money collected by Robert Michel in Mississippi.

5Title:  George S. Patton letters to Eleanor Banning Macfarland and John Cobb Macfarland, 1918-1940   
 Creator:  Patton, George S. (George Smith), 1885-1945 | Macfarland, Eleanor Banning, 1893-1940 | Macfarland, John Cobb, 1895-1966 
 Notes:  Two letters from General George S. Patton (1885-1945) to his cousin Eleanor Banning Macfarland and her husband John Cobb Macfarland. The letter to Eleanor is dated October 21, 1918, and was written while Patton was recovering from a leg wound he received in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive during World War I. Patton congratulates Eleanor on the birth of her daughter, Anne Banning Macfarland Brown (who had been born in July), sends his best wishes to various relatives, and notes that "I will be out [of the hospital] in a week or so...and can get back in the show and have some fun" (Patton returned to duty on October 28 but saw no further action before the armistice of November 11). The letter to John Macfarland is dated October 8, 1940. Patton thanks Macfarland for his congratulations (probably on Patton's promotion to brigadier general on October 2). Patton writes that "if and when" the United States entered World War II, he hopes he will "have the guts to put my theories of personal leadership into action." He further notes that he feels that he is "better situated to be killed than most as I have had out of life about all there is to get." He also comments on missing the recently deceased Eleanor, who was "very like a sister" to him.

 Notes:  The collection consists of correspondence, documents, maps, reports, publications, and clippings related to land tenure and water use in and around Mono County (including Mono Basin, Mono Lake, Lee Vining Creek and Rush Creek), Inyo County, and Los Angeles, California. Although the Clovers eventually sold most of their land in Mono County, they maintained a small parcel and ranch and Katherine M. Clover kept a diary from the 1950s-1970s recording her activities with the property. She also gathered information on land and water issues related to Mono County, the City of Los Angeles, and California in general. There is a small amount of family papers and a few materials related to land and natural resources in Colorado, where the Clovers also owned some land. The bulk of the collection consists of materials related to the interests of the City of Los Angeles (Calif.) in acquiring land in and the rights to appropriate water from Mono County (Calif.) for the city's use and consumption. Of note in the collection are copies of federal legislation on the sale and granting of public lands in Mono County to the City of Los Angeles (1921-1981) and an extensive amount of documentation regarding several court cases related to water and land rights in Mono County. The documentary materials gathered by the Clovers illustrate the agricultural history of Mono County, activities of advocacy groups such as the Mono Lake Committee, interests in geothermal resources in the vicinity, and federal legislation establishing the Mono Basin National Forest Scenic Area. There are also assembled publications and other materials related to land and water issues in California and in the greater United States. The collection includes a large amount of material on the governance and operations of the City of Los Angeles including city charters (1923-1972) and city ordinances (1909-1970). There is also material on several city departments including the Office of the City Clerk, the Dept. of Public Works, the Dept. of City Planning, and the Dept. of Water and Power. Also in the collection are business records and correspondence of approximately a dozen California-based water and utility companies including the Mono Valley Improvement Company (1915-1921), Rush Creek Mutual Ditch Company (1914-1959), and Sierra Land and Water Company (1920-1955). 173 maps (102 of which are oversize) of aqueducts, land, reservoirs, and water sources may be found in the collection. The counties of Mono and Inyo are particularly well represented, as is the City of Los Angeles and Los Angeles County.
