Frances Gibson Satterfield Papers
Scope and Contents
The research materials for the Charles Duncan McIver booklet consist specifically of correspondence about Charles Duncan McIver from former students, faculty, and family members. There are also copies of correspondence between Charles McIver and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, 1889-1893 (The originals of these letters are in the State Archive). Also among the research materials are notes on interviews and reminiscences with Charles McIver, various clippings, and a speech by journalist H.E.C. Bryant about McIver.
The personal correspondence is primarily personal letters to Frances from her 1928 classmates. One letter of note, from Gladys Tillett, discusses efforts to gather support in Congress for human rights conventions sponsored by the United Nations.
