Thomas Pim Cope Diaries
Thomas P. Cope was a successful Philadelphia merchant and Quaker who involved himself in a wide range of civic projects during the first half of the nineteenth century. He kept a regular diary between 1800 and 1851, with a gap between 1820 and 1843. In his diary, Cope records his own numerous activities, events taking place in Philadelphia and the wider world, and reflections on Quakerism, business, and many other topics. This collection contains digital facsimiles of the diaries along with their full text transcripts.
Historic Des Moines, Images of Des Moines 1904 – 1914
Take a glimpse of Des Moines, Iowa as it entered the 20th century. This collection contains photographs of homes, parks and public places taken between 1904 and 1914. The collection was created by scanning images from the original sources held by the Special Collections Department of Drake University's Cowles Library.
