Barr Ferree collection

Consists of two groups of material collected by Ferree: 1) copies of government reports, resolutions, proclamations, statements, and clippings concerning foreign relations, the entry of the United States into World War I, and other varied issues during the administration of Woodrow Wilson. Included are replies to Ferree's requests from the president's secretary, Joseph P. Tumulty. 2) The larger group consists of correspondence and ephemera relating to these general subjects: architecture, cathedrals of France, devastated France (after World War I), Egypt, flags, Germany, (World War I, the sinking of the Lusitania, etc.), libraries, London, museums, national politics (U.S.), New York, painting, Greece and Rome, and sculpture. Many of the letters are responses to Ferree's inquiries as secretary of the Pennsylvania Society of New York, which he founded.
