The Carbery Family Collection constitutes an extensive collection of materials about a number of related families which were prominent in the history of the state of Maryland. The following families are represented: Boyle, Brown, Carbery, Key, McSherry, Scott, Shriver, and Taney, among others. Many types of documents are preserved, including correspondence, photographs, printed materials, and genealogical charts. The documents derive mainly from the 19th and 20th centuries. The Carbery Family Collection complements other collections about Maryland history found in the Georgetown University Library Booth Family Center for Special Collections.
