 Title:  Amanda Graham Correspondence, 1907–19101907-1910 ead 
 Date(s):  1907-1910 
 Abstract:  Amanda Graham was a Tucson resident during the Arizona Territorial period, which dated from February 24, 1863 to February 14, 1912 when Arizona officially became a state. The incoming postal materials span from 1907–1910. The correspondence in this collection provides a snapshot of the life experiences of Amanda Graham, a woman living in the Arizona Territory during the early 1900s, along with those of her family and acquaintances located throughout various regions of the country. Family news, health, and crop growth are a few of the topics discussed. The collection also includes a few pieces of business correspondence, such as bills and credit notifications. From a postal history perspective, the envelopes may be of interest because of the flag cancels and Tucson Territorial backstamps.
