Abstract:

These files contain a variety of materials, mostly gathered by Towles, concerning the history of Henderson County, Kentucky, including her activities regarding the John James Audubon State Park and Mother's Day.

Materials concerning Audubon include Towles's correspondence with his granddaughters, Florence, Maria, and Harriet Audubon; with the Works Progress Administration concerning the design of the museum; and with Alice Tyler regarding her husband's (Leonard Sanford Tyler) collection of Audubon paintings and papers. Also included is information on the speculation that Audubon was heir to the French throne.

Files concerning the Mother's Day controversy include letters from Anna Jarvis' Mother's Day International Association criticizing Towles and her supporters, other correspondence, newsclippings, and photographs of Sasseen. Also among Towles' materials are papers relating to the Association of Southern Women for the Prevention of Lynching, to which she apparently belonged.

Local history materials include genealogical folders, library scrapbooks, materials on Henderson County towns and schools, photographs of Henderson and Henderson County, and a typed manuscript by Juliet Alves Johnston and Salome Tanner about the 1937 flood in Henderson. Also present are materials on Daniel Boone, George Rogers Clark, Richard Henderson; authors, Young Ewing Allison, Cale Young Rice, Juliet Alves Johnston, and Edmund Lyne Starling; and composer W.C. Handy who lived in the area during the late 1800s. There are also clippings about Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman to earn a medical degree in the United States. Blackwell taught in Henderson for a year before attending medical school.
