Owen Armstrong Collection
The Owen Armstrong Collection is a collection of 15 items of which 12 are correspondence. The correspondence is mainly to Joseph Neef from William Maclure or between Richard Owen and his wife Anne Eliza Neef Owen. There is an essay by Neef describing the first kiss between he and his wife. There is an official paper in Latin, possibly a marriage certificate. There is also a copy of Neef’s certificate of citizenship. The items are photocopies of originals that belong to the Owen Armstrong Collection and are not the property of the Working Men’s Institute. As such, they can be referred to for informational purposes, but not quoted.
