Frank and Annis Jury emigrated to Stockton, California from England at the turn of the 20th century, bringing with them their four children.
The collection consists of manuscript letters documenting much of the lives of Annis Cowl Jury and her husband, Frank T. Jury following their emigration from Great Britain to Stockton, California. Many letters that Annis wrote from England detail her own and her daughters' time abroad. Many letters from Mae and Ethel (daughters) add different stories from the perspective of American teenagers visiting their parents' old country. Some of the letters are written to Annis by English relatives. Some letters vividly describe the various and changing effects of World War I on English families and the home front. Also included are 144 pieces of family related ephemera.
Arranged into two series: Series 1. Correspondence, and Series 2. Photographs and Miscellaneous.
Jury family papers, 1902-1945. MS 3185. Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library, The University of Georgia Libraries.
