Gilliam at Hollins Institute, some Campbell Co. deeds and legal documents, printed minutes, 1878-1903, of the Staunton River Primitive Baptist Association
  • Also included are greeting cards, advertisements, a prohibition pamphlet and a photograph of the 1896 and 1897 graduating classes of Emory and Henry College. Of interest is a letter describing an attempted lynching in the 1920s and correspondence between Jennie A. Stone and the Perfection Shoe and Sandal Co., N.Y., concerning shoes for a shortened foot
