History of the Collection
Dorothy Kenyon promised her papers to the Sophia Smith Collection in 1951. Kenyon's brother and sister-in-law W. Houston Kenyon and Mildred Adams Kenyon donated the bulk of the papers in 1980. In 1998 Louise Wilby Knight (the granddaughter of Kenyon's first cousin Katherine Curtis Wilby) donated a small number of additional items including letters and audio-tapes. Additions to the collection are expected from time to time from other family members.
Periodic additions to collection are expected.
