On offer is an original, unique circa 1900 -1908 archive of a young college aged woman Frances Harding from Bellview [Bellevue] Tennessee. She attended Soule College and the Memphis Conference Female Institute. The archive includes letters [23] from her family and friends and some notes [9] from college friends and school mates. Some seem to be from young men who are trying to court her; others are from her friends telling Frances not to flirt! Here is a good example "Yield not to flirtation, For flirting is serious each sister will help you her brother to fight advances, Don't flirt with the boys (girls) let the boys (girls) flirt with you!" Also included: 4 receipts relating to college; a Soule College Recital program; five photos [four mounted on cardboard, one of Miss Smiths class]; and one Wedding invitation. BACKGROUND NOTES: Soule College was named for Bishop Joshua Soule of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The Rev. Thomas Madden, pastor of the Murfreesboro Methodist Church, organized it in 1851 and offered one to two years of college education. "The goals of the college were to provide a thorough education of the mind and heart and to impart sound and useful knowledge. Throughout the history of the school, the pupils were supervised closely in all matters of a moral and religious nature." Soule College, after its building was damaged, closed during the Civil War, but reopened soon afterwards, remaining in Methodist control until 1892. Lambuth University was a liberal arts university located in Jackson, Tennessee, and active from 1843 to 2011. It was supported by the Memphis Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. Lambuth's athletic teams participated in the NAIA's TranSouth and Mid-South Conferences. The university began as the Memphis Conference Female Institute in 1843 and was later renamed in honor of Walter Russell Lambuth (1854-1921), a Methodist missionary who traveled globally during his lifetime.
