Abstract:

The Duke Endowment Archives spans the years 1902 to 1992, although the bulk of the material dates from 1925 through the 1990s. In accordance with a records retention schedule, materials will be regularly added to the Archives from the Duke Endowment offices. The collection consists of correspondence; minutes of meetings; financial records; applications for assistance from hospitals, child care institutions, and churches; statistics; publications; oral history tapes and transcripts; architectural drawings and blueprints; and miscellaneous records and papers. The collection documents the administration of the corpus of the trust and the charitable contributions made to the categories of recipients named in the Identure and Deed of Trust establishing The Duke Endowment.

The records are arranged to reflect the responsibilities and operations of the trustees, officers, and divisions of The Endowment. Subject areas represented in the collection include: the history of foundations, hospital and child care demographics and other statistics, rural church buildings and activities, the construction of Duke University, and the life of James Buchanan Duke. The geographic focus is primarily North Carolina and South Carolina.
