A note, not in A.C.V.R.'s handwriting, stating that the Van Raalte's son-in-law, Pieter J. Oggel, had died at the age of 40 years. Undoubtedly this was a blow to the entire Van Raalte family and to Hope College where he was teaching.
The original documents are held in the Albertus C. Van Raalte Collection (M300) or the Dirk B.K. Van Raalte Collection (M301) in Heritage Hall, Hekman Library, Calvin University, Grand Rapids, MI. The Van Raalte material in Heritage Hall has since been reorganized.
This digitized material is intended for personal research/study only. The original documents may not be reproduced for commercial use in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, without permission in writing from Heritage Hall at Calvin University. Contact the Curator at Heritage Hall.
