Introduction

Lucy Elliot Keeler bequeathed her papers and books to the Hayes Presidential Center. The collection consists of diaries, clippings, correspondence, scrapbooks, photo albums and other material belonging to Lucy Elliot Keeler, cousin of President Rutherford B. Hayes and resident of Fremont, Ohio. The Birchard Public Library Records ( LH-300) also contains scrapbooks compiled by Keeler in connection with her work at the Birchard Public Library in Fremont, Ohio. Further information about Keeler’s role at Birchard Public Library may be found in the library’s Board of Directors’ minutes.

Biographical Sketch

Lucy Elliot Keeler, daughter of Isaac M. and Janette Elliot Keeler, was born Sept. 27, 1864, in Fremont, Ohio. Her maternal grandmother, Linda Hayes Elliot, was an aunt of Rutherford B. Hayes, 19th president of the United States. She attended Fremont schools and Wells College in Aurora, New York. She was forced to withdraw before completing her degree, however, because of vision trouble. After leaving Wells, she enrolled in a correspondence school established by a distant cousin, Anna Ticknor of Boston. She studied with the Society to Encourage Studies at Home for two years, then served as an instructor of American history for fifteen years and as a member of the organization’s board of management after Ticknor’s death.

Keeler’s interest in history and strong writing ability led to an extensive publishing career launched in her teens through the Fremont Journal, a newspaper owned and edited by her father. She also wrote for The Christian Union, The Boston Congregationalist, Outing, Ladies’ Home Journal, Harper’s Weekly, and Harper’s Bazaar. For fourteen years, Keeler contributed weekly editorials to Youth’s Companion. She also wrote two books, If I Were a Boy and If I Were a Girl Again. Beginning in 1913, she contributed one or two articles each year to Atlantic Monthly. She also wrote extensively for the Ohio Archaeological and Historical Society, publishing a number of monographs about the early history of the region that became Sandusky County, Ohio, and about celebrations and memorials of the life of President Rutherford B. Hayes and First Lady Lucy Webb Hayes.

Keeler was responsible for the reorganization of Fremont’s Birchard Public Library, which was established by Rutherford B. Hayes with funds from the estate of his uncle Sardis Birchard. For eight years, she served in the unofficial role of secretary for the library board. Through her efforts, the library was able to avert several financial crises. She promoted the expansion of the library’s physical space, staff, and collection.

Keeler’s abilities grew as she pursued her varied interests. She was an avid gardener, writing many articles on the subject for Atlantic Monthly, Scribner’s, The Garden, House Beautiful, and for newspaper syndicates. She became an accomplished photographer and enjoyed rowing on the Sandusky River, tennis, walking, and traveling. She was active in the George Croghan Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Musical Matinee Club, and Fremont’s Presbyterian Church.

Keeler cared for her elderly parents and managed the family’s dwindling finances. Despite her responsibilities, Keeler enjoyed time with Hayes family members at Spiegel Grove. She was a companion to President Hayes after Lucy Hayes’ death. She also transcribed Hayes’ diary and correspondence for William Henry Smith, who planned to publish them. Following Smith’s death, Keeler continued the work for Charles R. Williams, son-in-law of Smith, who eventually saw the project through to completion.Keeler enjoyed traveling with relatives and friends. She toured Washington, D. C., New England, the East Coast, and eventually Europe. Lucy Keeler died at the age of 65, on March 11, 1930.

Scope and Content

The collection consists of some 1,127 items, including 376 pieces of correspondence dating from 1885 to 1930, fifteen of Keeler’s diaries (1879 to1929), three scrapbooks (1882 to1903), fifteen photograph albums containing nearly 2,000 photographs taken by Keeler from 1878 to 1929, three account books (1890-1923), fifty-nine notebooks dating from 1890 to 1928, and forty-two essays published between 1888 and 1930.

The bulk of Keeler’s correspondence relates to her career as a journalist and educator. She corresponded frequently with editors, publishers, and readers regarding articles and publications. To a lesser degree, the collection contains correspondence with Anna Ticknor and colleagues of the Society to Encourage Studies at Home. There is also extensive communication with her parents, friends, and acquaintances. The correspondence is arranged chronologically, however the finding aid provides a alphabetical list of the correspondents’ surnames.

Keeler’s diaries offer a daily account of her life and activities in Fremont, Ohio, as well as details about her travels. The diaries contain newspaper articles, programs, invitations, announcements, and other miscellaneous memorabilia about her activities as well as those of friends and relatives. A typed transcript exists for each diary.

Keeler’s photograph collection consists of nearly 2,000 albumen and cyanotype prints arranged roughly chronologically in 6 ½ x 8 ½ inch albums. Keeler experimented with a variety of cameras, including early Kodak cameras, creating prints of varying quality, size, and shape. Most of the prints were dated and identified by Keeler. Pictures of friends, family, gardens, homes (including interiors), historic sties, and Keeler’s travels dominate the collection. Of particular note are the candid pictures Keeler took of President Rutherford B. Hayes, Lucy Webb Hayes, and the Hayes family at Spiegel Grove during the post-presidential years. Many of these appear in Album 15. Keeler also photographed Hayes relatives; including the Birchard A. Hayes family (President Hayes’s eldest son), the Rutherford H. Platt family in Columbus, Ohio; the Russell Hastings family in Bermuda; and the Bigelow family in Tarpon Springs, Florida. For a fuller description of the photograph collection and a database containing names, dates, and locations, see A printout of the database is located in the Hayes Center’s Reading Room. Because of the fragile nature of the albums, notebooks containing photocopies of the originals have been created for patron use.

Keeler’s notebooks, dating from 1890 to 1928, are closely connected to her writings. They contain notes, sketches, compositions, jottings from readings, research, potential story ideas, and anecdotes..Her essays consist of writings published in various periodicals. The collection also contains notes, documents, and correspondence concerning Keeler’s research on the early history and settlement of Sandusky County, Ohio. Genealogical research materials compiled by her exist for the Keeler, Hayes, Elliot, Fitch, and Bigelow families.

The collection also preserves the scrapbooks, reminiscences (1899-1900), photographs, poetry, writings, sheet music, and clippings of her mother Janette Elliot Keeler. The reminiscences (1901), documents, resolutions, clippings, and Masonic and Knights Templar materials of her father Isaac Keeler are also part of the collection.
