Introduction

The Sylvia Hortense Bliss papers, 1868-1984, consist of her correspondence, diaries, notebooks, published and unpublished writing (both poetry and prose), as well as photographs, genealogy of the Bliss, Parker, Marsh, and Whitney families, and a memorial scrapbook gathered by her sister-in-law, Lou Whitney Bliss. Sylvia H. Bliss (December 13, 1870-March 14, 1963), a writer, accomplished musician and amateur botanist, lived in her ancestral East Calais, Vermont, home for most of her life. Her later years were spent in Rochester, Vermont.

 

The collection came to the Vermont Historical Society in 1983 from Forest K. Davis, Bliss's biographer. In 1955 Davis of Calais, Vermont, a retired professor from the Binghamton Unit of Empire State College (New York), began a lengthy correspondence with Bliss. During the course of their correspondence, Bliss transmitted her papers to Davis. After Sylvia Bliss died in 1963, Davis corresponded with both Lou Whitney Bliss and her daughter, Barbara Bliss Rice. Davis eventually donated all the papers he had acquired to the Vermont Historical Society (ms. acc. no. 83.43) where they are housed in 5 document boxes and 1 flip-top box; they occupy 5.5 linear feet of shelving.

 

Biographical Sketch

 

Sylvia Hortense Bliss was the oldest child of Elmina Marsh (d. 1935) of East Calais, Vermont, and Warren Earl Bliss (1840-1930) of East Calais and Woodbury, Vermont, who married January 25, 1866. Sylvia (December 13, 1870-March 14, 1963) and her siblings, Clifford Earl (August 29, 1875- April 9, 1962), and Grace Marsh (1877-1922), were born in Toledo, Ohio. In 1885, the family returned to the East Calais farm where Elmina Marsh Bliss had been born.

 

Sylvia Bliss studied music in Iowa and was a student of music at Syracuse University under private teachers for two years. Apart from several sojourns in Boston, brief summer holidays, and winters in Florida in her later years, Bliss lived in East Calais with her parents and, in her final years, with her brother and sister-in-law in Rochester, Vermont. Bliss taught piano lessons and was a church organist; she read widely and was a self-taught botanist. Her four hundred specimen herbarium which she gave to Montpelier's Kellogg-Hubbard Library was lost in the 1927 flood.

 

Bliss' early published writings were short-stories in the Vermont Watchman and State Gazette and The Vermonter: The State Magazine. By the 1930s she was a regular contributor of poetry and short prose pieces to Driftwind, a literary journal, published and edited by Walter J. Coates, in North Montpelier, Vermont.

 

Between 1909 and 1918, Bliss sought medical treatment for a speech handicap with Boston neurologists Dr. Morton Prince and Dr. James J. Putnam. It was during this period that Bliss researched and published several articles in the American Journal of Psychology and the Journal of Abnormal Psychology on subjects that interested her as a layperson.

 

Bliss published two books of poetry: Quests, Poems in Prose in 1920 and Sea Level in 1933. A second edition of Quests with excerpts from the first was issued in 1965 with an epilogue by Forest K. Davis. In 1990, her work was collected and published under the title Uncut Leaves, with an epilogue and notes by Davis. The latter is the nearest we have to a complete bibliography of Sylvia Bliss' work; however, it does not contain all of the work she contributed to Driftwind. A bibliography of the latter is included in Doc 236:0 of the Bliss Papers.

 

Bliss' invalid sister, Grace, with whom Sylvia had an uneasy relationship, died in 1922. After her parents' death Bliss made her home with her brother, Clifford, and his wife, Lou Whitney Bliss (February 20, 1885-November 26, 1964). Their daughter, Barbara Whitney, was born in Northfield on April 19, 1915. Barbara Whitney Bliss, widow of A. Harlow Martin, married Gerald L. Rice and they have a son, Gerald L. Rice, Jr.

Scope and Content

The Bliss Papers, 1868-1984, are a comprehensive collection of the papers of Sylvia Hortense Bliss assembled for the most part by her biographer, Forest K. Davis, prior to Bliss' death. The collection includes not only information about her personal life and copies of almost all of her literary output (often in the original format) but it also reflects her intellectual curiosity on subjects as diverse as botany, philosophy, psychology, and music. The papers include her correspondence, diaries, notebooks, her published and unpublished writing (both poetry and prose), and fragments of her literary work as well as reviews. Information about Bliss' life includes photographs, genealogy, and a memorial scrapbook compiled by Lou Whitney Bliss after Sylvia died.

 

The collection consists in large part of Sylvia Bliss' letters. She wrote to her family during the periods she was away from home studying music and undergoing medical treatment in Boston, and later in her life while on short vacations from the East Calais, Vermont, farm.

 

The most voluminous correspondence is that of Forest K. Davis and Bliss between 1956 and 1962. During this period, Bliss answered Davis' queries about her life and literary work and sent him envelopes stuffed with her papers. Davis' arrangement of the envelopes has been retained: chronological by the date of Bliss' response. The contents of the envelopes are miscellaneous and Davis' notes on each envelope are a convenient inventory of the contents.

 

The portion of the collection related to Forest Davis is relatively small and consists of his letters to Sylvia Bliss between 1954 and 1962, as well as his correspondence with Lou and Barbara Bliss after Sylvia's death. Also included are typescripts of Davis' biography of Bliss, the 1964 edition of Quests, and correspondence and reviews of the latter.

 

Organization of the Collection

 

The collection is organized in two series:

I. Sylvia Hortense Bliss papers, 1870-1962

Series Description

 

I. Sylvia Bliss Papers

The arrangement of the Sylvia Bliss series is: her correspondence, diaries, notebooks, her writing (both published and unpublished), photographs and other family information, and miscellaneous items which include a collection of her clippings.

 

A. Correspondence

The correspondence which occupies a substantial part of the collection consists of family letters which she began as a young girl, letters to particular friends, and her lengthy, voluminous correspondence with Forest K. Davis. Bliss' letters to her family, which she began in 1875, are the oldest items in the collection. They continue until 1953 and she wrote them on those occasions when she was away from home: studying music, staying in Boston for medical treatment, enjoying rare holidays with friends, and in later years, spending winters in Florida.

 

Letters to friends include a lengthy correspondence from 1922 to 1941 with Mrs. H. C. Allen, a friend who shared her musical interests and with the Rev. Mary Andrews Conner from 1918 to 1922, an active Universalist, who, with her husband, summered in Vermont. It is in a March 23, 1928, letter to the latter, that Bliss writes of the Kellogg- Hubbard Library's loss of her herbarium in the 1927 flood.

 

In Sylvia Bliss' 1929 and 1930 letters to Will S. Monroe (author and traveler, best known in Vermont for his work with the Green Mountain Club), she questions him about her literary work and publishing; the latter are photocopies from the VHS manuscript collection (Doc 86). Several of his letters to her in 1932 and 1933 are original. (Doc 430:2). Other correspondents with Bliss on literary matters include Walter J. Coates, the editor of Driftwind, a magazine to which she was a frequent contributor; and ArthurW. Peach, a professor of English at Norwich University.

 

The letters which Bliss wrote to Forest K. Davis between 1956 and 1962 occupy the most space in the collection. In the course of their correspondence, Bliss transferred her papers to Davis. The folders containing this correspondence are arranged chronologically by the date of Bliss' letter; however, the contents of the folders are miscellaneous. Although the folders are labeled "letters," they contain all kinds of papers, and Davis' note, therefore, on each envelope is an important inventory of the contents.

 

B. Diaries

Most of the Sylvia Bliss diary entries are concise and the years are not consecutive. The earliest "diary," 1871, has no entries, only childish scribbles.

 

C. Notebooks

The numbering of the Bliss notebooks assigned by Forest K. Davis has been retained. They are not chronological and in some instances the dates are unknown. Some entries are journal-like, others are unconnected thoughts or reactions to books the author had read; others contain drafts or fragments of her poems, essays and stories. Again Forest Davis' notes on the cover of each notebook are a useful guide to the contents.

 

D. Writing

It is probable that a copy of each of Sylvia Bliss' literary efforts, whether it was published or unpublished, is included the collection. Her unpublished works are arranged chronologically if the date is known; among them is an 1878 manuscript. Her manuscripts are often handwritten but in some cases the later ones are typescripts.

 

Her published work includes appropriate issues of The Vermonter, reprints from the academic psychological journals to which she was contributor, and the issues of Driftwind which contain her short prose pieces. Page proofs, or flats, of her work published between 1927 and 1947 in Driftwind are included. (Doc 432:16 and 17).

 

E. Family Information

Information about Sylvia Bliss and her family includes a memorial scrapbook gathered by Lou Whitney Bliss, genealogy of the Bliss, Marsh, and Parker families, obituaries of Sylvia, her brother and her sister-in law, and photographs. Although many of the photographs are in Doc 432:26, others are scattered in the 1957 Bliss-Davis correspondence (Doc 240:7-20). Sylvia Bliss is portrayed as early as 1890 and at various times during her life; there are several pictures of other family members and her home in East Calais as well.

 

F. Miscellaneous

Sylvia Bliss' voluminous collection of clippings includes scraps of poetry, book reviews, and quotations or excerpts from her reading (Doc 432:32-36). A cassette tape that was made on September 30, 1957, of Bliss reading her poetry and playing the piano in is in the VHS Library audio collection (M-46).

 

II. Forest K. Davis Papers

The series of the collection related to Forest K. Davis is relatively small. Apparently Sylvia Bliss saved his letters from 1954-1962 (MSA 160:5). Other correspondence includes letters from Lou Whitney Bliss and her daughter, Barbara, after Sylvia's death as well as other business matters related to publishing the second edition of Quests in 1965. Davis read a paper at Montpelier's "The Club" in March 1984 about the life of Sylvia Bliss (MSA 160:8).

Snowmaking at Stowe Mtn Resort from Elephants Head Overlook, Long Trail, VT

Not the best shots because they were.taken from the passenger seat while hubby drove (quickly) keeping up with the group ahead...It sure was pretty when the sun came out in Vermont a couple of weekends ago. We went to meet up with a group of BMW and German car lovers from the Green Mountain BMW club and a bunch of us went for a drive through some great winding roads south of Stowe on Sunday. I love how tiny the cars look in this photo as we drove through some tall hillsides on both sides of the road. View On Black

Just 0.3 Miles to the Chin. Mt. Mansfield from the side has the appearance of a face and the Chin is the highest point.

 

Atop the mountain are areas of alpine vegetation and rocks. Hikers are asked as they enter the alpine zone to please stay on the rocks as to not damage the plants.

 

The Green Mountain club even has "caretakers" who sit atop the mountain to help keep folks aware of the rules and are quite helpful and knowledgeable about hiking this area of Vermont.

 

On a previous hike I was atop this mountain during "arctic" like conditions (in October) and getting back under the cover of the trees was quickly in order.
