Summary:

In addition, there are two catalogues that list favorite message cards and a list of publications of the Sandford, Pease and Prince companies. The Sandford and Prince Card Companies were owned by Mary Elizabeth Sandford and Georgina Prince, sisters of Lillian Pease.
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged into two series.

Series 1: Greeting Cards and Postcards, 1910-1936; undated

Series 2: Copyright Materials, 1908-1912; undated
Biographical / Historical:
Lillian Frances Kennedy Pease was born February 3, 1855 in New York. She worked as a teacher until her marriage to Alvah W. Pease, a jeweler from Buffalo, New York (1855-1925) in 1883. Shortly after her marriage she started a greeting card company on Laurel Street in Buffalo. Her sister, Mary Elizabeth Kennedy Sandford, also created a greeting card company in Danville, New York in 1907. Pease used the Sandford Card Company as a distributor for some of her greeting cards. Aside from her greeting card business Lillian was very involved in the Temperance Movement. On one occasion Pease went to Ireland to take part in the Women's Christian Temperance Union convention. Mementoes of this trip are in the Sandford Card Company Collection. Pease died in 1933 and the company closed shortly after her death.
