The Early Years—Ernest and Marcelline Hemingway in Oak Park is a collaboration between the Oak Park Public Library and the Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park. Images and artifacts include Ernest and his older sister Marcelline’s family, friends, and the communities that they grew up in. Documenting the first 19 years of Ernest’s and Marcelline’s lives, we can gain greater insight into Oak Park at the turn of the century through two of its own most famous residents.
Digitization of this collection was developed pursuant to a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a Department of the Office of Secretary of State using state grant funds.
