Series I. Biographical File, 1919-67, n.d.
This series consists of photocopies of newspaper clippings, genealogical charts, telegrams, newsletter articles, business cards, an Oberlin Golf Club score sheet, and an U.S. Armed Forces certificate of memorial. Many of the newspaper clippings concern Thomas's accomplishments on track and field teams, but others contain obituaries, and some describe a notable occasion when Thomas hit a 34 on Oberlin's front nine.
Series II. Diaries and Journals, 1918, 1989
The handwritten journal "Lake Stuff" was composed by Thomas Farquhar in April 1918. It records the activities of a small group of Oberlin College undergraduates during their spring break in March 1918. Sixty photographs of their adventures are included in the latter pages of the journal. This series also, for use by researchers, includes a photocopy of the journal and an annotated typescript copy.
Series III. Scrapbooks, 1915-19, 1989
The scrapbook (16 1/2" x 12 1/2" x 3 1/2") contains programs, letters, photographs, fellow student autographs, and other articles collected by Katherine Kilmer while she was a student at Oberlin College. A tribute "In Memory of Katherine Kilmer Farquhar" compiled by William Kilmer Farquhar and Mary Farquhar Dipman makes mention to the scrapbook within the context of family life and gives additional biographical information.
