Donor Sarah Slenczka notes that her mother Christina Carlyle Dublin had returned to Scotland searching for traces of her forebears. In Bridge-of-Allan where her grandmother Agnes Cooper Carlyle had had a sister, the Dublins went to the cemetery in search of her grandmother's grave. There they inquired about Carlyle family graves and were directed to the home of Alice Hay Robertson, who was a daughter of Agnes Carlyle's sister Katherine. This meeting led to an exchange of letters and information, whereby Christina Dublin also learned of the existence of related family in Chicago (a grandson of Agnes Cooper Carlyle's sister Katherine Carlyle Robertson). She later made contact with that family and obtained both photos and other information. See photographs and the letter of Elly Jackson in album four of "From the Carlyle Archive" (carton 1).
The personal materials of Christina Carlyle Dublin (cartons 4 and 5) were largely collected from the family home in Garfield Terrace, Washington, DC, and document the many phases of Dublin's life, organized more or less according to Dublin's curriculum vitae – from childhood and early education to approximately the 1960s. Materials include an application to the masters program for the New York School of Social Work and the reworking thereof in the 1960s as an application to the Howard University School of Social Work serve as a personal as well as professional autobiography. A copy of the latter, a curriculum vitae (1975) and reprints of her publications are collected in an introductory notebook. A notebook containing the Dublin Christmas letters summarizes the later years of her life. The professional materials of Christina Carlyle Dublin (carton 5 and box 6) were removed from an old leather suitcase originally packed by Dublin in the late 1980s when she was organizing her papers. Slenczka retained the original order and only added some general identification labels. (SCDS, Dec. 2015).
