Garrison Family Papers, Series 7: Memorabilia, 1694_1987 is arranged in two subseries. The first, _Family,_ contains Garrison family memorabilia which encompasses unidentified items and materials belonging to more than one Garrison. This subseries contains undated family games, valentines and greeting cards, and material on character analysis (1913_1950), and numerology and metaphysics (1922_1926). Of particular interest are a series of cookbooks, household lists, accounts, recipes, and an arithmetic primer. Although many have names attached to them, their origin is unclear. It is assumed that the cookbooks were passed down through generations because the handwriting varies throughout. The earliest is dated 1694 and the latest 1848, although many are undated.
