Riggs Papers
Whereas most of the American Board Archives consists of official documents and administrative records, this section offers a unique assortment of private correspondence and other material, including personal letters, notes, and sermons. These items relate to the Riggs family, principally Rev. Elias Riggs (1810-1910), his wife Martha Dalzell Riggs (1810-87), and their three children, Elizabeth, Emma, and Samuel.
