The Correspondence of various members of the Clark family of Campbell County, Virginia, originally Quakers, but later scattered to other denominations. Members of the family settled in Franklin, KY and Russellville, KY.
The papers of Frank Lawrence Owsley (1913-1959) consist of ten cubic feet of materials and are primarily concerned with the professional life and career of this historian, author, and teacher. The major series in the papers include the Correspondence, the Writings, Personal and Biographical Materials, Agrarians, Publication Material, Academic Career, Professional Activities, and Research Materials.
The Owsley Charts were compiled at Vanderbilt University circa 1939-45 through the combined efforts of Harriet Chappell Owsley, Blanche Henry Clark, and Chase Mooney, under the direction of Frank Lawrence Owsley, Professor of History. The charts themselves represent a composite of Schedules I (land ownership), H (slave ownership), and IV (products of agriculture) of the unpublished Federal Census for Tennessee, 1850 and 1860.
This collection contains an address, biographical and collection details, journal articles, and a manuscript relating to General Gates P. Thruston.
