Emily Howland papers

 Collection
Identifier: HC.MC-1164

Scope and Contents

Papers include the correspondence of Richard C.S. Drummond with legatees under Howland's will, representatives of African American educational institutions primarily in the South. The administration of the will required verification of incorporated names, since some of the beneficiary institutions had names that were different from those Howland used in her will. Much of the correspondence involves this verification, but, in the process, provides histories of these institutions. Correspondents include Mary McLeod Bethune, Levi Hollingsworth Wood, J. Henry Scattergood, Isabel Howland and Frederick Libby.
