 Collection
Identifier: MSC 0674

Scope and Contents

Papers and artifacts of Mary Katherine Dulin (Mrs. Clifford Folger), her school scrapbook (Finch School, 1920s and Miss Beard’s School), travel mementoes, photographs, condolence letters re: her father’s death, some small artifacts of H. L. Dulin. The personal letters and diaries were not donated to the McClung Collection. The Mary Katherine Dulin Collection consists primarily of school mementos and personal sewing and art supplies with some photographs, publications, and items related to her father H. L. (Hanson Lee) Dulin and his death, ranging in date from approximately 1912 to 1941. The school materials range from grade school to college, including Bell House School, Boyd Junior High School, and Knoxville High School, all in the Knoxville area. The college-level schools attended were The Finch School in New York City and Miss Beard's School in Orange, New Jersey. Katherine Dulin's passport along with travel papers can be found in this collection, which includes her photograph, and the stamps from about eight European countries where she traveled by ship with her mother in 1922 at the age of 18. Her passion for the arts is demonstrated throughout her life, and she developed her artistic interests early, as evident by the art supplies (paints, chalks, brushes, etc.) found in this collection, along with the numerous magazine cutouts of fashion and home décor (some of which are hand-colored).
