1 Title:   Oscar Newton Maxwell and Annie Sarah Coombs letters  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Maxwell, Oscar Newton, 1878-1933  
  Dates:   1895-2001  
The collection consists of correspondence and receipts. The correspondence begins in 1895 when Annie Coombs is fourteen years old and writing to her friend Oscar Maxwell. She goes away to school at Georgia Normal and Industrial College in Milledgeville and writes him about her studies, activities and friends. Apparently they used the nicknames Sun Flower (Oscar) and Hyacinth (Annie) in their early letters to conceal the identity of the writers, since their parents did not approve of the letter writing. They planned to marry in December 1897, even though her parents objected. But Oscar's December 17 letter states that Annie has backed out. By 1900 Oscar and Annie are married with a son Newton. Letters in 1918 tell of the sickness and death of Newton, probably of influenza. There are a few letters from other family members. Transcripts of the letters are included.
