Adams (John and Jane) (1856-1996) | Special Collections & University Archives

Name: Adams (John and Jane) (1856-1996)

Historical Note: This collection of ephemera—defined as materials created for a particular, limited purpose designed to be thrown away after use—is the result of decades of collecting by John and Jane Adams.  The collection offers a glimpse into some of the ways printed materials were used to capture the interest of American culture from the late 1800’s through the late 1900’s.  Such a collection can be used to trace shifts in cultural norms, as these items of ephemera typically reflect the prevailing sentiments of the population for whom the materials were created.
