Scope and Contents

Letters, mainly between Harry J. Morley and his wife, Celia Stuelke Morley, but including a few letters from their son, Burton, from training camp for World War I. It also contains such ephemera as calling cards, telegrams, greeting cards, and invitations.

Morley played baseball, probably for the railroad for which he worked, and there are some letters here about this. (Mainly about the injuried he suffered from playing ball.)

In 1927, the Nashua Reporter published an article stating that Celia Stuelke Morley had played a part in a movie filmed in Nevada, The Winnng of Barbara Worth, a 1926 silent film, a western starring Ronald Colman, Vilma Banky, and Gary Cooper in his first starring role. The film is notable for its climatic scene, which depicts the 1905 man-made flood that inundated the modern Salton Sea. Celia had a small part in the film. (This clipping does not appear in these papers.)
