Abstract:

Papers consist of correspondence, research notes, writings, artwork, photographs, and other items. Included are the papers of Susan S. Bennett, John H. Bennett, and the Smythe family.

Correspondence includes family letters as well as Bennett's correspondence with organizations, publishers, friends, other writers and artists including DuBose Heyward, Josephine Pinckney, and Hervey Allen. Topics include family matters, Charleston social life, historical research, Bennett's writings and art, the Poetry Society of South Carolina, Gullah, Black music and folklore, the Regulators, the Revolutionary War in South Carolina, and Bennett's Red Cross work during World War I.

Writings include manuscripts and manuscript fragments of novels, stories, and articles (many unpublished); juvenalia; copies of Bennett's poems; and drafts, galley proofs, and adaptations of Bennett's published fiction; with related correspondence, illustrations, clippings, and other items.

Photographs (ca. 1875-1956) are of John Bennett and Bennett family members, scenes in Chillicothe (Ohio), North Carolina, and elsewhere, Woodburn Plantation (S.C.), family dwellings, black fishermen and farm workers (ca. 1900), and other subjects. Also included are negatives, including glass negatives of family portraits and houses and buildings in Charleston (S.C.), and silhouette cutouts on glass. Original artwork includes designs for silhouettes, ornamental lettering, mounted silhouettes, and pencil drawings of Egyptian motifs, humorous characters, and other subjects, with related correspondence. There are also reproductions of Bennett's silhouettes and illustrations, and clippings of cartoons and other material.

Topics of research notes include black folklore, music, and superstitions, Gullah, slavery in South Carolina, the Revolutionary War in South Carolina, and the history of Charleston (S.C.), with related correspondence and clippings.

Other items include scrapbooks of clippings of articles, verse, and drawings by Bennett, reviews and advertisements of his books, and memorabilia; biographical material on Bennett; genealogical material on the Bennett family; and musical transcriptions of black spirituals and street cries and original music by Bennett.
