Abstract: The Mather family is a prominent Cleveland, Ohio, family related to the early New England Mather family and descended through Samuel Livingston Mather (1817-1890), who moved to Cleveland from Connecticut in 1843. Family members were prominent in all areas of Cleveland's development, including business and industry, education, philanthropy, the arts, medicine, literature, and politics. Many became nationally and internationally noted in their fields. The Mather family is related by marriage to the Bishop, Stone, Woolson, Benedict and Hay families. The collection consists of individual and group portraits of Samuel Livingston Mather, his family, friends, descendants, and related families, including Amasa Stone, John Hay, Constance Fenimore Woolson, and Dr. Robert H Bishop. Also included are views of Mather residences on Euclid Ave., Cleveland, Ohio, and in Bratenahl, Ohio. Views of the Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Company are included.
