Alfred North Whitehead was an English mathematician and philosopher born on the Isle of Thanet in 1861. The bulk of the collection is formed by correspondence between members of the Whitehead family: Alfred North Whitehead, his wife, Evelyn, their son, T. North and his wife, Margaret dating from the 1920s-1940s.
Collection consists of one bound holographic notebook of philosopher and mathematician, Charles S. Peirce. The notebook contains a catalog of books on logic and scholastic philosophy from Peice's personal library. Peirce also noted the estimated value of each title. Most likely, Peirce compiled the notebook, 1880-1881, at a time when he hoped to find a buyer for his library. Most of the books were acquired by the Johns Hopkins University in 1881.
