Abstract

The Virgil A. Lewis papers consist primarily of a holograph draft of a history of Marshall College from its founding in 1837 until the 1890s, with an emphasis on the early years, before the Civil War. Included are research notes, trascriptions of documents, correspondence, and a copy of the contract between Mrs. Virgil Lewis and Lawrence Corbly, former president of the college, who carried on the work of the history after Mr. Lewis's death. There are also pamphlets written by Mr. Lewis and two compilations by his daughers Lucie and Virginia: "A History of the Lewis and Stone Families" and a reminiscence of Elizabeth Blizzard Stone Lewis.
