Description This small collection, created by Blanche Mabel Wood (October 4, 1882 - May 15, 1966), includes newspaper clippings about her, Mary L. "Minnie" Sherman, and John and Charlotte Broad. The Broads owned a home at 424 North Cedar Street in Lansing. Minnie was Charlotte's daughter from a first marriage. Mabel's mother died when she was five, and her father brought her to the home of the Broads, who were his distant cousins. Mabel graduated from high school in Lansing and also attended Olivet College. She was a teacher in the Lansing schools until 1949. The collection includes her correspondence with Minnie and others; samples of her poetry and other writing; clippings about her and the family she lived with; small notebooks from Minnie's club involvements in Lansing; and other biographical information.
