Bear genealogy collection.
Author
Baer, Willis N.
Physical Description
1.5 cubic ft.
Summary
This collection consists primarily of correspondence, notes, and materials collected in preparing a genealogy for publication. About half of the collection is composed of letters to Dr. Willis N. Baer. A significant other part of the collection was generously given to Dr. Baer by Robert Bruce Bare, Esq., co-author of a 1910 genealogy with Daniel M. Bare, Genealogy of Johannes Baer 1749-1910. It is difficult in some cases to distinguish between notes and materials created by Dr. Baer and those items he collected through Robert Bruce Bare. A few personal items relate to Dr. Baer's career as a Professor of Economics at Moravian College, as well as other matters. There are also copies of wills, other court documents, land surveys, and maps; and photographs of cemeteries and places in Switzerland. In 1955, Dr. Baer published The Genealogy of Henry Baer of Leacock, Pa., 1715-1771.
