2 Title:   Thomas Reade Rootes (T.R.R.) Cobb family papers  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Zamphtoff, Archibald  
  Dates:   1872-1961  
The collection consists of papers of Thomas Reade Rootes Cobb and the Cobb family from 1872-1961. Includes correspondence, clippings, photographs, printed material, legal materials relating to Cobb's law practice, financial records, and manuscript poems written by Cobb under the pseudonym of Archibald Zamphtoff. It is important to note that this collection is not that of the original T.R.R. Cobb (1823-1862) Civil War hero, but rather of a later descendent and namesake. In some places, this collection refers to T.R.R. Cobb III, but that was also the name of Howell Cobb's son who died in infancy, so he is more commonly referred to as T.R.R. Cobb or Cobb in the collection. He is not to be confused with his namesake, his great grand uncle, the Thomas Reade Rootes Cobb who died in the Civil War. The correspondence contains letters from Maud Barker (Cobb) to her parents Charlotte C. and C.P.N. Barker written while a student at the Lucy Cobb Institute (Athens, Ga.) and letters between Cobb and Maud including correspondence during Cobb's World War I service as a clerk with the American Legation in Stockholm, Sweden (1918) and Winchester, England (1919). Other correspondence, including originals to Cobb as well as typed carbons of his replies, relates to Cobb's law practice and pertains to legal cases, politics, and the Democratic party. Additional correspondents include Howell N. Cobb, Clark Howell, and C.P.N. Barker. The collection also includes several volumes of class notes taken by Howell N. Cobb while at Emory University (Atlanta, Ga.) and Harvard (Cambridge, Mass.) and scrapbooks containing clippings and photographs of Carolyn Cobb.
