Biographical/Historical Note
Asahel Clark Kendrick and Ryland Morris Kendrick were both professors of Greek at the University of Rochester.

Scope and Content
This collection is an addition to the original Kendrick Family Papers (call number A. K32). The bulk of the first collection centers mainly on correspondence and other papers of Asahel Clark Kendrick (1809-1895), professor of Greek at the University of Rochester (1809-1895), author and translator, and of Ryland Morris Kendrick (1867-1947), professor of Greek at the University of Rochester (1891-1937) along with correspondence of trustees, prominent educators, clergymen, and literary figures. This collection also includes family correspondence to and from A. C. Kendrick from his wives: Anne Elizabeth (Hopkins) Kendrick, and Helen Morris (Hooker) Kendrick; his children, and his son-in-law Rossiter Johnson.

The additional one box contains more family correspondence including early letters to Anne Elizabeth from A.C. Kendrick and her father. There is correspondence between Ryland M. Kendrick and Mary Cooper. One folder has newspaper clippings from the 1953 wedding of Ann Kendrick and Neal A. McNabb.

Enclosed in this collection are three coffin plates from the Hopkins family. Generally made of a soft metal like pewter, silver, brass, copper or tin, coffin plates are decorative adornments attached to the coffin that contain information about the deceased. The practice of removing the plates from the coffin before burial increased in the 19th century. The coffin plates were often removed to be kept as mementos by the loved ones of the deceased. This practice peaked in the late 19th century (1880-1899).
