545 |a The Hawkins Family Papers contain the papers of Jacqueline Van Zanten Hawkins (1951-2002) and Kenneth Lee John Hawkins (1958-1994). Van Zanten and Hawkins were married in 1985. Hawkins was abandoned as a child and spent most of his childhood at the Northern Home for Boys in Philadelphia. He eventually earned a Bachelor’s degree and a Master's degree and worked for a number of charities and civic organizations in the city. He worked for Planned Parenthood, the Better Business Bureau, and taught at Temple University. He also wrote freelance articles for periodicals. Jacqueline was born in Brooklyn in 1951. She received her Bachelor’s degree from Middlebury College. She later moved to Philadelphia where she worked as a custom frame-maker as well as in the Education Department at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. Kenneth Hawkins died of AIDS-related complications in 1994 as did Jacqueline in 2002.
