"Samuel Shinn Ash and his wife, Sarah J. Schofield, were prominent Quakers, active in a variety of philanthropic activities, including anti-slavery, peace, temperance, women's rights, and education. Samuel Shinn Ash was born in Philadelphia in 1829, the son of Dr. Caleb and Rebecca Shinn Ash. He was apprenticed as an engineer and machinist and worked in manufacturing. He married Sarah J. Schofield, daughter of Oliver W. and Mary Jackson Schofield, in 1859. This collection consists of family papers, manuscript letters, and memorabilia, largely of a domestic nature. Includes some descriptions of Meetings and religious journeys, of the early struggles of Samuel S. Ash in engineering and business, and references to the Schofield Normal and Industrial School in Aiken, S.C., of which Martha Schofield, one of the correspondents, was Manager. The exchange of letters between Mary S. Ash and her mother, Sarah Ash, describes student life at Swarthmore College in the 1890's."
