This collection consists of letters and documents related to the Snell/Barnard land transaction in 1913. Snell became a prominent developer of North Shore, the Old Northeast, and Snell Isle. Snell acquired tracts of land between 26th Avenue North and 30th Avenue North, east of First Street North to Coffee Pot Bayou from the Erastus A. Barnard family of Chicago. Although documents in this collection have inclusive dates from 1898 through 1951, most of the materials relate to the 1913 land sale. These materials were acquired by purchase through the Society for Advancement of Poynter Library.
