Resources

We are deeply appreciative to the members of these organizations who have helped and supported us throughout our research:

University of Mary Washington—Special Collections

Located in Fredericksburg, VA. UMW’s Special Collections are housed in Simpson Library. Special thanks to Mrs. Carolyn Parsons for all of her assistance. Major collections:

  • President Russell’s Papers—Edward H. Russell served as president of the Fredericksburg State Normal School from 1908 to 1919. These papers are not available online.
  • Academic Catalogues and Bulletins—Published four times a year, these publications give great insight to major activities and changes at FSNS. Most of these catalogues and bulletins are digitized and available online, with the exception of a few that were deemed too fragile to digitize.  Visit the digital collection here.
  • Battlefield Yearbook—Yearbook for UMW/FSNS. The yearbooks offer further insight into student life at the school. A yearbook was not published in 1918. Mrs. Carolyn Parsons, UMW’s Special Collections Librarian and University Archivist, speculates that this circumstance was due to the Great War. The yearbooks are digitized and available online.  Visit the digital collection here.
  • Viewbooks—Special Collections holds only two viewbooks: one from circa 1918 and one circa 1919. Each viewbook is a small collection of photos published by the school. These viewbooks are not available online.

Central Rappahannock Heritage Center

Located in Fredericksburg, VA. The CRHC holds spectacular collections related to local history, and we are extremely grateful for all of the collections they let us look at, as well as the materials they digitized for us. Special thanks in particular go to Sue Stone and Barbara Barrett.

  • Knox Family Collection
  • Josiah P. Rowe, Jr., Collection
  • Urbane Bass Collection
  • Miscellaneous items

Virginia Historical Society

Located in Richmond, VA. The VHS holds many collections related to the history of Virginia. Special thanks to the archivists who helped us find relevant collections, especially the Virginia War History Commission book.

  • Goolrick Family Papers
  • Virginia War History Commission Book

Library of Virginia

Located in Richmond, VA. The Library of Virginia, like the VHS, holds many collections related to the history of Virginia. Our time at the Library was limited, so we only looked at one collection. Special thanks to the archivists who brought us our materials and allowed us to take photographs of the items to aid our research.
