1Title:  Oliver Kingsley Brooks Sketches     
 Creator:  Brooks, Oliver Kingsley 
 Dates:  1861-1995 
 Abstract:  Oliver Kingsley Brooks was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1845. His art studies in Cleveland and New York City were interrupted by the American Civil War, when Brooks joined the 150th Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry, serving as a corporal in 1864, during which time he took part in the defense of Washington, D. C. After contracting malaria, he returned to Cleveland and entered into business with his father's firm, Huntington and Brooks. Brooks became a prominent Cleveland businessman. He maintained a lifelong interest in art, serving as vice president of the Cleveland Art Club. He was also a book collector, leading to membership in the Rowfant Club. Other organizations to which he belonged included the Western Reserve Society, Sons of the American Revolution; the Union Club; and Troop A, Ohio National Guard. He married Harriet Ellen Gill in 1884. They had two daughters. Brooks died in 1914. The collection consists of sketches, sketchbooks, drawings, watercolor paintings, portraits, photocopies of sketches and watercolors, a photograph, photocopies of photographs, a biographical essay, a genealogical chart, and an essay written by Brooks. The collection is of value to those studying Civil War history, army life during that war, and general scenes of nineteenth century life. The sketches include views of Civil War buildings, such as Fort Slemmer in Tennessee and the barracks at Fort Bunker Hill, Washington, D.C., and drawings of Civil War scenes of camp life done during 1864. Also included are general scenes of nineteenth century life ca. 1860-1880s; including people, landscapes, boats, lighthouses, churches, houses, and other buildings.
