Dearest Jeanie... Highlights of the Wilkes - Smedberg Papers (1853-1913)

Comprised of photographs and letters written to and from Jane “Jeanie” Wilkes, her husband, John “Jack” Wilkes, as well as extended families and friends, the Wilkes-Smedberg Papers offer a rare glimpse of daily life in three, very different locations: New York City, Washington, DC and Charlotte, North Carolina during the nineteenth and early part of the twentieth century.
