Series 16
Additions by Herty family and others, 1895-1970
Boxes 141-144

Scope and Content Note

The additions include family photographs and correspondence; clippings; notes and copies of speeches and articles by Herty; and samples of pine pulp paper and rayon. The material covers a span of years from 1895 to 1970, but most of it is from the years 1930-1950. News clippings about Herty's work and his death constitute the majority of the material. Of special interest are the testimonials and resolutions following Herty's death; the large number of obituary clippings; and correspondence belonging to Dr. Charles Holmes Herty, Jr. (father of Mrs. Brown) concerning the campaign after Herty's death to establish the Herty Forest Institute at Waycross, Georgia, and the efforts to carry on the work of the Herty Foundation Laboratory at Savannah.

The series also contains material collected by this department relating to the Herty papers, copies of scholarly papers or research articles about Herty or his colleagues, and information concerning related collections in other repositories.
