Abstract:

Correspondence, notes, biographical sketches, pictures, financial and legal documents, volumes, clippings, and other materials pertaining to the history of the Reed family of Buncombe County, N.C. Reed family correspondence includes letters to Mark L. Reed (1902-1944) at North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (now North Carolina State University), from his mother, Bethany Barbara Sales Reed, discussing family matters and farming; letters to Edith Alicia Murphy Reed, wife of Mark L. Reed (1902-1944); letters to Mark L. Reed (1935- ); letters to and from Samuel J. Fisher, second husband of Edith Alicia Murphy Reed Fisher; and letters from Joseph Lucius Reed to his family, written while Joseph was serving in the American Expeditionary Forces during World War I, discussing daily life in camps and on the battlefront in France. The collection also includes materials, mostly written by Harriet Katherine Reed Whitaker, Ella Osmonia Reed Latham Mathews, and Joseph Lucius Reed (b. 1893), related to the history of the Reed family, as well as the history of the Swannanoa River Valley, which surrounds Asheville, N.C. These materials include correspondence with other genealogists, biographical sketches about various Reed family members, family trees, and genealogical notes. Also included are materials pertaining to the Harrison and McBrayer families, who were related to the Reed family through marriages. The collection also contains other documents, among them financial papers, legal papers, and clippings from newspapers and magazines, related to various members of the Reed family. Included are membership cards, licenses, and certificates belonging to Mark L. Reed (1902-1944), documenting his various affiliations with civic groups and fraternal organizations, as well as his work in the aviation industry, both as a pilot and as an investor. Also included are materials related to Mark L. Reed's death in 1944 from injuries sustained in a plane crash. There are also military documents from Joseph Lucius Reed's service in World War I, documents relating to Edith Alicia Murphy Reed's career as an elementary school teacher, and certificates and clippings documenting the childhood and education of Mark L. Reed (1935- ). Papers related to Samuel J. Fisher include military documents from his service in World War I; financial statements related to his divorce from his first wife, Mary Patterson Fisher; point certificates from American Contract Bridge League tournaments; and sheet music from when Samuel was a member of the Harvard University Glee Club. There is also an extensive collection of photographs and pictures of members of the Reed, Murphy, McBrayer, Kitchin, and Sales families, and printed volumes belonging to, or written by, Reed family members.
