    Title:Bates family papers
    Date(s):1879-1940
    Call No:MSS 0758
    Abstract:The Bates family papers comprise 1.3 linear feet of correspondence, diaries, and ephemera documenting the personal and professional lives of three generations of Bates family members and largely centering on[...] materials relating to writer Arlo Bates. The collection also offers insights into the archeological work of Arlo’s son, Oric Bates, while documenting the social and professional lives of Arlo’s daughter-in-law Natica Inches Bates and his grandson John Chester Bates. Arlo Bates (1850-1918) was a novelist of over fourteen works of fiction, a poet, and a professor of English at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T) in Boston. His son, Oric Bates (1883-1918), became a prominent archeologist and Egyptologist of Harvard University’s Peabody Museum before his untimely death.
