Other Archives and Special Collections with Drexel Family Material

There is no repository that has a comprehensive collection of Anthony J. Drexel or his family and Drexel descendants. Because Drexel destroyed much of his personal correspondence, any material he created is especially significant. A number of archives and libraries hold Drexel family-related material, and there is currently an effort to confirm the existence and location of these materials.
