Hubert Hawkins collection
Scope and Contents
The oldest letter, dated June 3, 1776, is to George Washington from General Daniel Morgan in Cambridge, Massachusetts, advising him that "we can spare two regiments for service in your New York Campaign." Another letter from George Washington in the 1790s to John Sinclair in London states: "agriculture and the objects attached to it which have ever been my favorite pursuit that I could wish."
There are also several documents that relate to Oliver F. Beyl who, on August 4, 1901, married Beulah B. Makowsky in Jeffersonville, Clark County, Indiana. Oliver, residing in Memphis, Indiana, received a teacher's license on March 29, 1902, for 12 months, and another license to teach on July 29, 1905, for two years. When living in Jeffersonville, Mr. Beyl received a two-year license to teach on March 28, 1908.
The later part of the collection consists of court documents regarding Fish vs. Lattimore from December 1869 and photographs of Governor Townsend and Secretary of State Cordell Hull at a banquet December 5, 1939. Also included are several documents related to John Dillinger, including a report on the Crown Point Jail Break, a copy of the Indianapolis Times 1934/04/18, photographs of Mary Evelyn "Billie" Frechette, and police bulletins with mug shots.
