Biographical Note on the Goodwillie Family
Scope and Contents
The scrapbook contains mostly newspaper clippings: poems, anecdotes, reports in which Goodwillie or Barnett family members are named, and several descriptions of society weddings in Cleveland, Ohio. A few postcards, tickets, programs, and photographs are also included. Most of the material is undated.
J.B. Goodwillie attended the University School in Cleveland, Ohio and played on their football team (1890). Several clippings report on the team's efforts for that season. Other articles mention James A. Barnett, Goodwillie's grandfather who served in the Civil War. In later years, Barnett was prominent in commercial and benevolent movements in Cleveland. Also in the scrapbook are descriptions of weddings attended by J.B. Goodwillie, Harriet, and Mary C. Goodwillie.
It is possible that the scrapbook was begun by J.B. Goodwillie and eventually, added to by Mary C. Goodwillie. The final items include a report of the retirement of Thomas Goodwillie from the Standard Oil Company in Baltimore and an obituary of Thomas Hodges who died at the Goodwillie home in Baltimore, 1919.
