2.1: Family Correspondence , 1896, circa 1920s-1969

Series consists primarily of correspondence between Liebes and her sister Mildred, her nephew Peter and other nieces and nephews, her parents Frederick and Bessie, and her brothers Frederick and William. Correspondence generally documents daily family life and the management of family financial affairs, and in some cases reveals details about her business affairs. In a 1961 letter in Box 1, Folder 17, for example, Liebes writes of trying to assist family members with financial support, but discusses the difficulties her studio is facing having lost an account with Dow Chemical.
Correspondence with Liebes's brother Frederick L. Wright includes notes on Liebes family history, and an 1896 affidavit relating to the education of Bessie Calderwood.
