Norma Taylor Mitchell papers, circa 1930s-2020 49.5 Linear Feet
The collection contains material documenting Mitchell's dissertation research on the Virginia politician David Campbell (1779-1859). Boxes 2-5 consist entirely of information on loose index cards. These materials also document Mitchell's research on the enslaved women who lived on Campbell's estate in Abington, VA. The collection also contains materials related to Mitchell's research on the Alabama physician Louise Branscomb. There are materials documenting Mitchell's professional activities and teaching career at what was then known as Troy State University. Mitchell's extensive service work in the Methodist Church at the local, regional, and national levels is also documented.
News Service Biographical Files, circa 1930s - 2004 183 Linear Feet
The collection consists of biographical files of Duke University faculty, staff, alumni, and others compiled by the News Service. The files contain primarily clippings and also curricula vitae, and other printed materials; most photographic materials were separated into other folders, described below.
This subseries includes materials which could be identified as related to Heschel's writings. The types of writings includes tributes, typescripts (in a variety of working draft states) of articles and essays some of which were ultimately published and some presumably unpublished, newspaper articles, editorials, book reviews, galley proofs, and typescripts of interviews with Heschel. Also included are a small amount of handwritten notes, lists and correspondence that are specific to Heschel's writings and materials which are not related to Heschel's writings but were included in the folder. Note that not all typescripts include a title or author name, but were identified as Heschel's based largely on his handwritten corrections or annotations on the typescripts. The materials are arranged chronologically.
