William Frost Mobley was a dealer in antiquarian ephemera in Wilbraham, Massachusetts.  He was a member of the Ephemera Society of America, the American Historical Print Collection Society, and the American Printing History Association.





The papers are a collection of American ephemera related to funerals and mourning customs.  It consists of a wide variety of mostly late nineteenth century printed materials that document American funerary and mourning practices of the time.  The collection includes manuscript bills for grave-digging, burial and gravestones; printed eulogies and elegies; printed invitations to funerals, 1827-1925; printed and pictorial billheads for funeral-related businesses, 1838-1916; printed memorial cards, 1843-1926; tributes to members of a fraternity killed during the Civil War, 1861-1865; death announcements and funeral notices, 1870-1928; trade cards for various funerary businesses; letterheads of companies selling caskets, monuments, and other funeral services, 1880-1902; cemetery deeds; samples and price lists for mourning cards; two photographs of horse-drawn hearses; two lithographed mourning pictures; a mourning badge honoring President William McKinley; and similar items.   A few of the items are for mock funerals.   





For the most part, the materials are arranged by type and then by accession number.


A name index to the collection is appended to this finding aid.
