Identifier: ZSC
Abstract The Zieget Shaker Collection Papers document Irene and Julius Zieget's relationship with the Shaker community while they developed an extensive collection of Shaker art and crafts. The papers also include some of the Ziegets' acquisitions--nineteenth- and early twentieth-century manuscript material. Included here are records of deaths, recipes and other household instructions along with spiritual messages, blessings and hymns all recorded neatly in the distinctive and decorative Shaker hand.
Dates: 1841-1868, 1919-1968, undated
