Abstract:

The collection includes family, business, historical, and genealogical correspondence and other items of Robert Brent Drane. Early correspondence is of Drane's parents, Catherine Caroline Parker and Robert Brent Drane Sr., and of Robert Brent Drane with friends and family while studying theology in New York. Correspondence, 1877-1932, reflects Drane's genealogical and historical interests, including his involvement with the Roanoke Colony Memorial Association and the proposed construction of a memorial at Fort Raleigh, N.C. There is corrrepondence with his cousin, North Carolina bishop Joseph Blount Cheshire, as well as letters to Drane from his children, including some from his daughter Marian while at Saint Mary's School in Raleigh, N.C., and some, 1915-1925, from his son Frederick Blount Drane, serving as a missionary and later Archdeacon of the Yukon among the native peoples in the Yukon and Alaska. Later correspondence includes letters to Frederick Blount Drane from American soldiers serving in World War II and the Korean War and letters from prominent alumni of the University of North Carolina Class of 1912. Notable correspondence includes letters relating to the Wright brothers' flight trials: two letters, 1908, addressed to Eliza Drane from Collier's Weekly editor Arthur Ruhl describing his attempts to photograph the trials at Kill Devil Hills, N.C., and one 1929 letter mentioning Frederick Blount Drane's having taken a piece from one of the Wright gliders. The collection also includes original and transcribed copies of wills, indentures, and deeds; church records; financial records; historical research materials; genealogical notes, charts, and sketches; printed material; and clippings relating to Drane and Webb family members and to ecclesiastical history in the American colonies. Some papers relate to Josiah Collins and Josiah Collins Jr. of Edenton, N.C., and their mercantile endeavors and involvement with the North Carolina Diocese, Saint Paul's Church, and the establishment of the Edenton Academy in Edenton. There are also some records of religious services performed by Frederick Blount Drane at Monroe, N.C., 1925-1955; sermons of Robert Brent Drane and others; blueprints and architectural plans, chiefly relating to the Fort Raleigh monument; and photographs, including a set of portraits, circa 1910, of University of North Carolina athletes in uniform.
