1Title:  Kellys Island Literary Society Records ("The Islander")     
 Creator:  Kellys Island Literary Society 
 Dates:  1860-1878 
 Abstract:  Datus Kelley (1788-1866) and his family were some of the first permanent settlers of what later became Rocky River, Ohio. In 1833 Datus, with brother Irad, began to purchase land near Sandusky, Ohio, on Cunninghma's Island. The island was later renamed Kelly's Island. The Kelley Island Literary Society was established pursuant to the building of Kelley Hall, a hall Datus Kelley built. On December 22, 1860 the Literary Society published its first edition of the Islander. Anyone who wished to join the literary society was welcome, including women. The collection consists of issues of a manuscript newspaper published on Kelleys Island, in Sandusky Bay, Erie County, Ohio, by the Kellys Island Literary Society. The journal was "devoted to the discussion of questions in the Arts and Sciences, Agriculture and Manufactures, Politics and Morality." Prepared and written during the winter months, issues were read before weekly gatherings of inhabitants of the isolated island. Includes reports on current events, editorials, letters to the editor, articles on history, humor, philosophy, religion, science, and travel, letters of soldiers participating in the American Civil War, and advertisements.
