Scope and Content   The collection consists of two hundred and fifty-two letters exchanged between Theodore Lilienthal and Sophie Gerstle Lilienthal between 1877 and 1889 as well as eight letters exchanged between Theodore and other members of his family and his personal friends. Theodore's letters to Sophie illuminate his deep love and devotion to her and his beliefs that a woman's place in society and within her own marriage should be determined by her husband and that a wife should practice frugality and order. Among the letters is also a menu from Theodore and Sophie's wedding, a bill from San Francisco's Palace Hotel, many poems that Theodore wrote or gave to Sophie, and one poem Theodore sent to his father, Rabbi Max Lilienthal, in 1880, on the occasion of Max's twenty-fifth jubilee as rabbi of Cincinnati's Congregation Bene Israel. The collection also includes the pages of two photo albums. These albums contain photographs (circa 1870-1910) of members of many prominent Bay Area Jewish families. Surnames documented in the albums include the following: Arnold, Bibo, Bissinger, Bransten, Braverman, Bucki, Cauffman, Cohn, Dinkelspiel, Ehrman, Esberg, Falk, Fecheimer, Felsenthal, Feinstock, Fleishhacker, Frank, Frankel, Gerstle, Gerstley, Glassman, Glazier, Greenbaum, Greenebaum, Greenewald, Guggenheim, Guggenhime, Haas, Harmuth, Hecht, Heilbronner, Heller, Herscheimer, Hillyer, Hirsch, Jacobi, Kauffman, Koch, Koester, Kohl, Lebenbaum, Lehmeier, Levison, Lilienthal, Livingston, Mack, Meyer, Mooser, Niebaum, Ottenheimer, Reese, Regensburger, Rosen, Seligman, Seligsburg, Sloss, Stepbacher, Sternau, Strauss, Sussman, Tanhauser, Walter, Wasserman, Weil, Weinstock, Wiel, Wormser, Wornum, Wunsch, and Zinn.
