The Cabell Family Papers

Cabell Diaries: At the University of Virginia's Special Collections Library

The best way, of course, to enter imaginatively into the world of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Cabells is to read their personal papers. The University of Virginia holds the commonplace books, diaries, and/or journals of several men and women connected to the family. Time considerations have prevented the creators of this site from delving too deeply into any one of these marvelous repositories of information, and they await visitors to the library... A partial list of these resources has been compiled here.
