Abstract:

The Few family papers encompass two families: the Few family and the Thomas family. The majority of the collection was created by Mary Reamey Thomas Few and her husband, Dr. William P. Few. Dr. Few served as President of Duke University from 1910-1940. The collection is divided into four series: Correspondence, Genealogy, Miscellaneous, and Political Papers of Mary Reamey Thomas Few. The majority of the correspondence was written by and to members of the Few and Thomas families, including letters between Dr. and Mrs. Few prior to their marriage. There are also letters from Mrs. Few to her parents (Lyne and Elizabeth Thomas) written while she was an undergraduate at Trinity College (Durham, N.C.) in which she discusses her friends, her classes, her professors, and her social life. Additional subjects in the correspondence series include family and business matters (in Virginia and the Carolinas) and social conditions in Durham. Mrs. Few's political papers consists of the correspondence, memorabilia, pamphlets, clippings, photographs, and printed materials amassed by Few in her capacity as a leader in the Party. Items include materials concerning N.C. state politics, campaign strategies, political support, the New Deal and other issues; photos of Philadelphia hotels; a copy of Eisenhower's 1955 State of the Union Address; cards from prominent Republicans; and Republican Party news releases. Printed matter highlights the national conventions, and includes such items as hand-outs, souvenir volumes, buttons saying "I LIKE IKE," "I'M DAFT ABOUT TAFT," and "IT'S TIME FOR NIXON," and documents on the workings of a presidential campaign.
