Charles Guiteau and Clarence Ashley Links


I mentioned these in class yesterday and I’ve added them to the list of links on the right – the best part of the Guiteau Collection are the copies of letters written by him – to get there click “go to folder listing” at the top of the page. The folder listing has direct links to all of the documents.

The Clarence Ashley site has been maintained by his great-grandson, and is a good source for biographical information as well as some family pictures and memorabilia. The picture below was taken at the Newport Folk Festival in 1963: that’s Dock Boggs (he’s the one with the banjo) behind Ashley, and Mrs. Boggs sitting against the wall on Ashley’s left.
