Abstract:

Consisting of letters, receipts, wills, and writings documenting the family of George and Lilla Johnstone McCutchen of Columbia, S.C., and related ancestors.

Materials dated 1811-1898 chiefly relate to Job Johnstone, grandfather of Lilla McCutchen, and a S.C. Supreme Court Justice and jurist; an 1810 graduate of S.C. College; licensed to practice medicine; lawyer; clerk of S.C. Senate, including letter, 27 Aug. 1831, from J[ames] Hamilton, Charleston, S.C., congratulates Job Johnstone, a member of the Nullification Convention, on his appointment as a delegate of the States Rights & Free Trade Party at the Free Trade Convention in Philadelphia. Also includes correspondence to John M. Johnstone as Consul to Brazil, 1897.

Focus of the collection shifts in 1898 to the McCutchen family who lived in the town of Church (Williamsburg County, S.C.); materials document George and Lilla's courtship, extracurricular and scholastic activities of their sons, and correspondence with siblings. George McCutchen (1876 1951), son of Col. James and Mary Jane Gilland McCutchen, graduated from South Carolina College in 1898. After teaching first in Mullins, S.C., in 1900 he joined the faculty of South Carolina College, where for forty-eight years he was professor of economics.

Correspondence, 3 June 1903 - 22 Dec. 1904, documents the courtship of George and Lilla Kennerly Johnstone; letters describe their travels, summers in Fowler (Williamsburg County, S.C.), and Pawley's Island, S.C., purchase of a lot in Columbia, S.C., and the building and furnishing of a house at 1906 Pendleton Street.

Letters to and from siblings of George and Lilla includes correspondence with Lilla's brother Alan Johnstone in Newberry, S.C., regarding settlement of Johnstone family estates during the 1930s and 1940s with George and Lilla's children: Alan Johnstone (1905 1993), George Thomas (1909 1967), James Malcolm (1914 1983), and Wilmot Ruet McCutchen (b. 1916).

Two oversize scrapbooks (1844-1950 and 1935-1952), contain clippings re World War I and World War II as well as invitations, programs, and printed matter reflecting Lilla's involvement with the DAR, the University of South Carolina, and Winthrop College (scrapbooks onsite PU-5).

The scrapbooks also include writings by George McCutchen on economic issues which appeared as articles and a copy of "Report of Five Members Favorable to Southern Deliveries, Part of a Committee of Ten Appointed at a Meeting Held in Washington, D.C., on January 19, 1934, Under Senator [Ellison Durant] Smith's Auspices for the Purpose of Considering Possible Changes in the Cotton Futures Contract," 14 Feb. 1934. Writings of Lilla include papers presented before the D.A.R. and Current Literature Club, plays, and papers for master's degree coursework.
