The papers of Edwin C.M. Dickey document his early life in Wicomico County, Maryland through his military career and ultimately his personal interests when he was a resident of the United States Soldiers Home in Washington D.C. The materials date from 1898-1963 with the bulk of the material 1921-1963 documenting his post-war life interests. Edwin traced his genealogical roots as far back as John Dickey of Chester County, Pennsylvania who had military ties with George Washington in the American Revolution. Edwin studied and wrote on a wide range of subjects including world and American history, philosophy, and science. Further, there is evidence within the papers that Edwin was an early 20th-century Free-Mason. Also included within the records are a series of scrapbooks, ledgers, correspondence, and photographs.
