Scope and content
The fonds consists of four letters written by William Hart-McHarg, the law partner of J.L.G. Abott, to Elizabeth Abbott; clippings and newspapers covering the wars; and photographs of McHarg in uniform. Fonds also consists of two photograph albums containing family photographs and commercial Edward Bros. photographs.
