About this collection

This collection provides online access to the digitized papers of the Prow family ranging from 1776 through the 1980s.  The collection includes correspondence, postcards, legal documents, memorabilia, genealogical documents, photographs, and other materials documenting the lives of the Prow family of Delaware County, Indiana and Bloomington, Indiana.  It also includes genealogical information on the Evans, Strong, Wingate, and Rohrbaugh families.  Most of the documents in this collection were created and curated by Alice Prow Clark.

 

Alice was born on February 3, 1908 to Dr. Fred James Prow, a dentist and land developer, and Hallie Pace Prow in Bloomington, Indiana.  She married Fred Orlin Clark, a medical student at Indiana University, in the garden of her parents’ home at an unknown date.  Her brother, Harold Pace Prow, was born on January 7, 1900 in Bloomington and married Maud Imogene “Jean” Wingate Prow.  Although he originally intended to work in automotive business, Harold chose to work in agriculture and raised Hampshire hogs with the help of his father.  He eventually moved to Albany, Indiana where he died in 1976.  He had three children with Jean: Mary Alice Prow Bilby, Priscilla Jean Prow Phillips, and Fredrick Wingate Prow.  

 

The complete collection of the Prow family papers is available in the Ball State University Archives and Special Collections.
