Eleanor White & Lucy Graham White Rodgers Scrapbook.

 Collection
Identifier: PAS 0120

Scope and Contents

The scrapbook, assembled around 1910, contains documents collected by Eleanor Wilson White (1842-1889), daughter of Hugh A.M. White, granddaughter of Knoxville’s founder, General James White. The documents apparently passed to her sister Lucy Graham White Rodgers (1847-1925), who compiled the scrapbook and added newspaper clippings. The scrapbook is seriously degraded, but of real interest are the 36 original documents glued into it. Among these papers are deeds and documents for early Knoxville history pertaining to property of the White family, as well as a hand-written list by Hugh A. M. White of the James White children with birthdates. Some of these documents include the signatures of Moses White and Hugh A. M. White. See Finding Aid for item descriptions.
