Scope & Content
File pertains to 35 letters written by Catharine Robb Whyte to her mother, Edith Morse Robb from November 15, 1950 to February 19, 1951. Topics include driving down through Idaho, Washington and Oregon to catch a boat from Los Angeles to Hawaii, time spent in San Francisco visiting with Belmore Browne, happenings on the ship [the SS President Wilson of American President Lines], arriving and first staying in Waikiki, moving to Waimanalo, visiting with friends, weather, Christmas cards, holiday activities, tropical food and flowers, radio programs, travelling around to different parts of Oahu, travel back to San Francisco by ship [the SS President Wilson again], driving from San Francisco to Golden, and boarding the train in Golden to Banff [the Jeep was shipped via train as well].

Notes
Please note: language pertaining to Indigenous Peoples used throughout is outdated and may be offensive. Letters are hand-written. Some letters are written on letterhead from ships or hotels. Some letters contain small sketches of hotel/motel layouts, road layouts, and room/ship cabin details. Some letters are marked with a small x in pencil, indicating where Jon Whyte made notes for use in his project "Catharine Robb Whyte, Peter Whyte: Commemorative Portfolio," originally published in 1981. Brochures and map are not clearly attached to specific letters so are counted as their own entries. Many letters are written on very thin paper [possibly tracing paper]. 128 / 25 is mis-numbered, missed numbering page 5.

Some letters also have dates written in pencil of when the were received by Edith Morse Robb [?]. Letter 21 looks disjointed due to repeated page numbers and some blank space but these were stapled together so these pages were kept in this order to respect the archival record.

Notes
Please note: language pertaining to Indigenous Peoples, people of colour, and those of the Jewish faith used throughout is outdated and offensive. Some items were stapled together and therefore scanned together as one document. Letters are all handwritten and include some hotel and camp letterheads. Some letters are marked with a small x in pencil, indicating where Jon Whyte made notes for use in his project "Catharine Robb Whyte, Peter Whyte: Commemorative Portfolio," originally published in 1981.
