Frances Newman served as Georgia Tech's librarian from 1924 to 1926. Her papers are comprised of correspondence and newspaper clippings dealing with her untimely death, as well as typescripts of some of her published and unpublished works.
This collection contains one photograph of Frances Newman. This is the same photograph that appeared in the 1924 Atlanta Constitution article announcing Miss Newman as the new librarian at Georgia Tech.
Dr. James P. Smith was a faculty member of the Georgia Tech English Department. The bulk of the materials constituting this collection are of the scholarly research he conducted on Frances Newman, an author and a librarian at the Georgia Tech Carnegie Library in the 1920s. His goal was to write a biography on Newman and compile a collection of her criticisms, but Dr. Smith passed away suddenly in 1980 before he could accomplish this.
The Newman Family Grave Stones Photograph Collection contains 11 color photographs. The photographs, taken circa 1987, document the various grave stones in the Newman family lot in Westview Cemetery, Atlanta.
