Kent from Woodrow Wilson; and correspondence relating to the unveiling of a portrait of John R. Thompson and to Kent's position as literary editor of the Library of southern literature.

Also prominent in the collection are Gessner Harrison's father, Dr. Peachey Harrison, and wife, Elizabeth Lewis Carter Tucker Harrison; their daughter, Mary Harrison Smith; and Betty Lewis Carter.

Other topics include a survey of General Alexander Brown's lands in Nelson County, Va; a University of Virginia program for athletic events; an article by D.G. Harrison praising John E. Massey's stand on Virginia political issues; and an article concerning the life of Robert Emmet.
