Series III: Correspondence

Because the line between Jacobs’ personal and professional life was often blurred, all correspondence-both professional and personal-has been organized into one series. Substantial materials from a particular project or event have been organized around that project or event name while more general correspondence has been organized alphabetically by the last name (or when no last name is provided by the first letter of the first name) of the correspondent.

Series V: Personal

This series includes material that correspond more directly to Jacobs’ personal rather than professional life. Included are books and monographs found in Jacobs’ office, school yearbooks, a portfolio of watercolors, diplomas, journals, and military ephemera. The series includes photographs of a more personal nature found within the collection. Included within the series are studio portraits-both of Robert Allan Jacobs himself and of his family-and more informal snapshots, especially from Jacobs’ vacations and hunting expeditions.
