Little is known of Rose L. Sherwood or her daughter Gladys S. [Sherwood?] Wells other than what can be gleaned from the collection. Rose evidently enjoyed the theater and wrote articles for Broadway Magazine. According to her daughter, she was a pioneer woman insurance executive. Gladys may have been a teacher of English and was clearly interested in Japan and Japanese culture. Both women traveled to Europe and Gladys went to Japan.
The Rose Sherwood / Gladys Wells Papers consists of the papers of two women, Rose L. Sherwood and Gladys S. [Sherwood?] Wells.
Rose L. Sherwood's papers contain correspondence, two travel diaries (one of a California trip, the other of "European travels"), memorabilia, and writings (two articles published in Broadway Magazine).
Gladys S. Wells' papers include published books by others, both fiction and non-fiction; memorabilia, most related to a trip to Japan; teaching materials, including some on teaching English to Spanish-Americans; a research paper by Wells on well-known author Lafcadio Hearn; and assorted memorabilia, including some relating to conferences and conventions.
