The Angeli-Dennis papers came to the University through two separate acquisitions from the former home of Helen Rossetti Angeli at Woodstock, England. Dr. William E. Fredeman acquired the papers on behalf of the University. The first acquisition in 1966 consisted primarily of papers of William Michael Rossetti. The second acquisition in 1972 resulted in further Rossetti family papers from Imogene Dennis, Helen Rossetti Angeli's daughter.
This collection consists of the diaries (1855-1913), manuscripts, financial records, and correspondence of William Michael Rossetti (1829-1919).
