The collection contains 1954 letters from Charles Hardy to his wife Joyce, 1960's letters from Agnes Campbell (Joyce's step-mother) to Joyce, photographs of Charles Hardy's family, and biographical materials on Charles and Joyce Campbell Hardy.
Transcript of historical and descriptive narrative entitled "Black Prairie, a Regional Study," which relates to the geographical history and development of the blackland prairie region of Texas, which includes the cities of Dallas, Waco, Austin, and San Antonio.
There are three personal letters and a baby book in this collection. Researchers interested in SFA President Birdwell's administration or the history of female faculty at the university might find these materials useful.
The collection consists of one Civil War letter; correspondence, mostly from Dillard B. Hazen during World War I, including post cards; mostly unidentified photographs and tintypes; newspaper clippings; poll tax receipts; and World War I buttons and mementos. Photocopies of obituaries and cemetery records have been added to help identify family members.
The Henry Brewer Family Papers consist of business and family correspondence; land grant and title papers; deeds, field notes, and plats; tax receipts; accounts, promissory notes and receipts; resolutions; Baptist Church session minutes and other publications; the Brewer Family Bible [too fragile to handle]; and genealogical materials.
These papers include Civil War letters from Henry Curl to his wife, Julia, and one to her brother, Lawrence S. Taylor. The letter to Lawrence is quite long and gives an extremely detailed and interesting account of Henry's experiences in the war.
