Collection Name: Theresa Vielé Scrapbooks
Repository Name: University of Delaware. Library. Special Collections Department [Repository Details]
Repository Location: Newark, Delaware, United States
URL: http://www.lib.udel.edu/ud/spec/findaids/viele.htm
Dates Spanned: 1870-1871
Description: The Teresa Vielé collection consists of two volumes of scrapbooks, each approximately 130 pages in length, and spans the dates June 1870 to October 1871. As these dates correspond to those of her divorce suit against General Vielé, much in the collection centers on this event. Such material includes letters, newspaper clippings, and telegrams from attorneys and detectives. The scrapbooks also contain calling cards from prominent members of New York society; invitations to balls, charities, or weddings; programs for concerts and church services; and announcements for lectures or events. Material relating to Vielé's personal business consists of notes and receipts from banks, insurance companies, antique furniture dealers, hotels, and renters. Other items found in the collection are a newspaper clipping of a poem, "To My Child," published by Teresa Vielé in The Home Journal, a transcription of a piece called "The Rights of Woman," and a page on which Vielé glued fern specimens from the Pacific Coast.
