Overview and metadata sections

Morgan Brooks (1861-1947) and Frona Marie (Brooks) Brooks (1861-1947) are central figures in the Brooks Family collection. They descended from the Brooks, Butler, and Buck families of New England.

Frona's grandfather, Charles Buck (1798-1863), married Sophronia Herrick (1803-1841) in 1825. The couple had three children, Charles W. Buck (1833-1933), a Unitarian minister; Robert Herrick Buck (birth name Jedidiah), who invested in Colorado gold mines; and Charlotte Frances Buck, (1828-1907). In 1852 Charlotte married Boston attorney Benjamin Franklin Brooks, and the couple had four children: Frona Marie Brooks, the only child to marry, Arthur, Esther Clara Herrick Brooks, M.D., and Franklin Herrick Brooks. Morgan's grandfather, Caleb Butler, married Clarissa Varnum, and they had a daughter, Frances Butler in 1822. Frances married Francis Augustus Brooks, a Boston, Mass., corporate attorney and railroad president, in 1847. This couple had three children: Charles B., Frederick, and Morgan Brooks. The collection includes correspondence among these family members and a great deal of professional correspondence and documents, mainly from Charles W. Buck, Benjamin Franklin Brooks, Franklin Herrick Brooks, and Francis Augustus Brooks.

Morgan Brooks and Frona Marie Brooks were married in 1888. They moved to Urbana, Illinois, shortly after their wedding where Morgan became a nationally known professor of engineering. Morgan and Frona had eight children, all of whom survived into adulthood: Henry Morgan (1889-1948), married Ruth Hayford in 1911; Charles Franklin Brooks (1891-1958), married Eleanor M. Stabler, and they had seven children; Frances Brooks (b. 1893) married Lincoln Colcord in 1929; Frederick Augustus Brooks (1895-1967), married Harriet Kinley in 1921 (divorced) and, secondly, Margaret H. Ward in 1929; Roger Brooks (1896-1957) married Anne Goebel in 1921 (divorced) and, secondly, Janet in 1928; Edith Brooks (1889-1952); Frona Marguerite Brooks ("Margie") (1901-1985), married George Hughes in 1924. The couple had two daughters, Ann and Octavia ("Taffy") before they divorced in 1927; she then married Richard Rice; Dorothy Prescott (b. 1905), married Joe Thomas in 1931. Barbara Brooks Kerner(1922-2007), the Brooks descendant who consolidated the Brooks family papers in her home in Newark, Delaware, was the middle child of Eleanor Stabler Brooks and Charles F. Brooks. She graduated from Radcliffe College in 1944 and earned an M.A. at Cornell University; during the summer of 1945 she worked at C.P.S. Camp #46, Big Flats, N.Y., for two months. In 1948 she married Edward Kerner under the care of Brooklyn Preparative Meeting. Edward H. Kerner (1924-2002) was a physicist who worked on the Manhattan Project in Dayton, Ohio, and a long-time physics professor at the University of Delaware.

Barbara Kerner was active in peace activities, including draft counseling during the Vietnam War and its aftermath. A lifelong Quaker, she was a member of Newark Monthly Meeting at the time of her death on October 28, 2007.

The Brooks Family Papers contain extensive correspondence, diaries, and other papers from multiple generations of the Buck, Butler, and Brooks families of New England and the Mid-West and the Kerner family of Delaware. Prominently represented are Morgan Brooks (1861-1947), a professor of engineering, and his wife, Frona Marie (Brooks) Brooks (1861-1947). One of their children, Charles Franklin Brooks (1891-1958) became a member of the Society of Friends shortly after marrying Eleanor M. Stabler (1892-1986) in 1914. Their daughter, Barbara Brooks (1922-2007), married Edward H. Kerner, and she was active in Quaker concerns, particularly peace. Also included in this collection are business, legal, genealogical, and professional papers of family members.

Barbara Kerner and other members of the Brooks family, 2003 (Accession number: 2003-015); Winifred and Benjamin Kerner, 2007, 2008 (Accession number: 2007-021, 023, 2008-010); Winifred Kerner, Acc. 2018.044

The bulk of the papers were received in 35 cartons and boxes in 2003. They were sorted into family groups, and the pictures were removed to PA 129. Series 1 contains the papers of Charles and Eleanor Stabler Brooks, the parents of Barbara Brooks Kerner, the donor, and they are directly linked to the Stabler Family Papers, a collection given to Friends Historical Library of Swarthmore College in 2002-2003. Series 6: Franklin Herrick Brooks and Benjamin Franklin Brooks Business and Legal Papers (2 boxes) is partially processed and stored in archival cartons. A folder of material concerning the pacifist activities of E. Russell Stabler was transferred to the Stabler Family Papers, RG 5/234.

In December 2007 and March 2008, papers from the estate of Barbara Kerner were given to the Library by her children. The Delaware Draft Counseling Service records were transferred to the Swarthmore College Peace Collection. The Barbara Brooks Kerner Family Papers, Ser. 7 (6.5 linear feet) were processed in 2010. One carton of letters received by Barbara Brooks Kerner was separated from the 2008 donation in the transfer from the Kerner home to Friends Historical Library. These were purchased on ebay by a nephew and reunited with the rest of the collection in 2018. Much of this accession, 2018.044, was scanned by a niece of Barbara Brooks Kerner, Valerie Samson, before she forwarded it to Winifred Kerner. Divided into seventeen plastic bags with a rough inventory prepared by Valerie Samson, the correspondence was transferred to archival folders as received and added to the finding aid in 2021 with Valerie Samson's description of contents.

Scope and Contents

Also well represented in the collection is Frona Marie Brooks's sister, Esther Clara Herrick Brooks (ECHB) or "Daisy." She was born October 16, 1859, graduated from Smith College in 1882 and earned an M.D. from University of Michigan Medical School, although she was never able to practice due to hearing loss. Early letters with her father, discussing whether she should pursue continued education or should practice medicine, are interesting; her letters with her sister Frona Marie also give a good picture of college life during the 1880s. As an adult, Esther devoted her time to being the aunt of Frona's eight children, going to prodigious lengths to keep the family in contact, and compiling their letters. She died in September 1942
