Abstract:

The papers consist chiefly of personal and office correspondence. The former contains letters to Menefee while he was convalescing from war wounds. Many mention the great flu epidemic of 1918-1919. Later letters are mainly to and from his wife and family. The office files contain correspondence from his position as secretary to A. Willis Robertson and administrative assistant to Harry Byrd.

Most letters concern routine situations, engagements, speaking trips, local arrangements, and minor requests from constituents. Some touch on local and Virginia politics and Byrd's campaigns.

Also include Menefee's personal legal and financial papers; statements of his accounts with Byrd; speeches; petitions for the repeal of the Taft-Hartley Act; World War I papers including training material, notes and field messages from active service in France, honors awarded, and efforts to receive disability payments; clippings; photographs; and memorabilia.

In addition, there is a letter, 1861 June 11, J. Lucius Davis to William Miller authorizing the latter to raise recruits for Wise's legion in Shenandoah and Rockingham Counties.

Correspondents include James Lindsay Almond, Harry Flood Byrd, Richard Evelyn Byrd, Alfred Dickinson Barksdale, John Stewart Battle, Colgate Whitehead Darden, Douglas Southall Freeman, Burr Powell Harrison, William Sobieski Hildreth, Jay Winston Johns, Absalom Willis Robertson, James Strom Thurmond, William Munford Tuck and John Jordan Wicker.
