  Creator:   Davis, Robert Scott, 1954-  
  Dates:   1844-2009  
The collection consists of mostly photocopied articles from various historical agencies, some original correspondence, maps, photographs, and newspaper articles relating to subjects Mr. Davis has written about. Included are materials about Georgia's participation in the Texas Revolution; Charles Cole Hind and Aetna Insurance; and miscellaneous Georgia material (especially historic Georgia houses). The first deposit relates to Georgia's participation in the Texas Revolution. There is general soldier information, rosters, maps, flags, and photographs, plus specific information on James W. Fannin and William A. Ward. The Charles Cole Hind and Aetna Insurance material concerns Georgia and Alabama. Mrs. Hind, as the insurance representative, made pre-Civil War building insurance surveys in the two states; xeroxes of the surveys are in this collection. There is also a copy of the book of instruction for agents & a bound copy of The 100 Years of Fire Insurance..., the history of Aetna from 1819-1919. Finally, selections from the miscellaneous Georgia material include: information about the Harris-Pearson-Walker House in Augusta, Carter's Quarters (National Register house) in Murray County, gold mining in Georgia, and materials gathered on the history of Clinton and other places in Georgia.
