Scope and Contents:
Handwritten texts on verso contact print reads, " Lusambo. European cemetery."
Judge E. Gorlia's first journey in the Belgian Congo from December 1909 to January 1912.
In the Congo Free State many deaths among colonials occured and were connected with the founding of new administrative, commercial or religious stations, the clearing of new grounds and, the heavy transport work. The majority of these deaths were from black-water fever or, fever of the ordinary malaria type.
Lusambo was established in February 1890 as a fortified camp on the Sankuru River, from which place the Congo Free State could conduct exploration of katanga and military operations against the Arabs in the Lomami-Lualaba area. In 1910 it was the headquarters of the Kasai province and a growing commercial post. The Roman Scheut Fathers, the American Presbyterian church and the Methodist Episcopal had important Missions nearby Lusambo.

Date:
1836-1932
Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Cemeteries forms part of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Subseries 1.1: Subject Categories. The Subject Categories subseries is divided into 470 subject categories based on those created by Mr. Warshaw. These subject categories include topical subjects, types or forms of material, people, organizations, historical events, and other categories. An overview to the entire Warshaw collection is available here: Warshaw Collection of Business Americana
Scope and Contents:
This subject category- Cemeteries consists primarily of deeds, burial permits, owners' receipts, certificates, shares, by-laws, rules and regulations, engravings of monuments, memorial programs, tickets for entrance into cemeteries, maps, annual reports, catalogues and historical publications from cemeteries. There is little information from military cemeteries. While most of the material is from cemeteries there are some printed advertisements from manufacturers of grave markers and signs. There are a number of publications included among the materials. Most of these publications were produced by various cemeteries and discuss historical background and the layout of the cemetery often using images of the grounds. There are two pamphlets which discuss cemetery shares and a few addresses concerned with the proper disposal of dead bodies and justification of burial grounds.

Included among the materials is an invitation to participate in the dedicatory services of the monument erected in memory of William Cheseborough, Thomas Minor, Walter Palmer and Thomas Stanton. Along with the invitation is biographical information on these men, the pioneer settlers of Stonington in 1649, whose remains had previously rested in unmarked burial places at Wequetequock. Included with this information is a list of names of the contributors to the founders' monument, erected in 1899.

In this material are New York State Acts to amend a previous act authorizing the incorporation of rural cemetery associations passed in 1847. The three acts included all date from 1861.

The bulk of the material is late nineteenth century. Materials are organized alphabetically by name of cemetery.

Provenance:
Cemeteries is a portion of the Business Ephemera Series of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Accession AC0060 purchased from Isadore Warshaw in 1967. Warshaw continued to accumulate similar material until his death, which was donated in 1971 by his widow, Augusta. For a period after acquisition, related materials from other sources (of mixed provenance) were added to the collection so there may be content produced or published after Warshaw's death in 1969. This practice has since ceased.
