Biddle family papers

Creator: Biddle family
Abstract: The Biddle family papers consists of eight linear feet, spanning from 1766 to 1943, and bulking in the nineteenth century and early twentieth century. The collection comprises deeds, indentures, contracts, correspondence, receipts, photographs, ledgers and account books, publications, essays, postcards, ephemera, and clippings. The Biddle family papers preserve overone hundred and fifty years of material related to this prominent Philadelphia family, and detail extensively their professional lineage as attorneys, notary publics, and bankers. Resulting from the intermarriage with two other established Philadelphia families, the Biddle family papers also contain materials related to the Lippincott and Rush families, which are described in Series II.
