Scope & Content The Hanna Family papers consist of correspondence and other materials from the Hanna Family who lived in Muncie, Indiana during a portion of the period from which this collection originates. Though the family was living in Indiana, they had many ties to Ohio and some to Michigan. Included are the papers of Lyman Hanna and his daughters: Genevieve and Lucile Hanna. Also included are papers from Emma Hartman, who married Lyman Hanna and is the mother of Genevieve and Lucile, and Frank C. Ballinger, who later married Lucile Hanna. The bulk of the collection consists of correspondence written to members of the Hanna Family. The collection also consists of: correspondence written by members of the Hanna family; diplomas and other records from the various schools and colleges primarily attended by Emma Hartman, and Genevieve and Lucile Hanna; various event and organization programs; and a large set of photographs of the family. It was indicated in the accession file for this collection that the Hanna Family worked as missionaries. The family was most definitely interested in religious education, and Lyman Hanna was a reverend. Emma (Hartman) Hanna, and Genevieve and Lucile Hanna were all educated as teachers, and many of the institutions they attended were in Ohio. All three women were well-educated for the time period. This is a great collection of family correspondence touching not only on their day-to-day activities, but also referring to major events of the day, especially World War I.
