Around 1988, my mother, Anne Prince, donated a collection of original papers documenting her immigration to American with her mother in 1922. I was told it was made part of an exhibit about immigration to America. Is there any way to find out if the Balch still has these papers, if they are on display, and is there any way they could be viewed, in person or online, or if copies are available?

Dear Mr. Prince,

Interesting question. I performed a couple searches in our collections database, but nothing came up there. I'll ask a couple of my colleagues and see if we can turn up any information for you. If you could email me at, then we can email you back if we find out anything.

Thanks for reading and commenting!
