Collection Description

Historical Note

Andrew A. Lipscomb (1816-1890) was Chancellor of the University of Georgia from 1860 to 1874. Lipscomb was also a minister in the Methodist Protestant Church and the founder of the Metropolitan Institute for Young Ladies in Montgomery, Alabama. After leaving the University in 1874, he taught at Vanderbilt and later returned to Athens where he wrote and lectured for the rest of his life. His son, Francis A. Lipscomb, graduated from the University in 1866 and later became Professor of Belles Lettres.

Scope and Content

The collection consists of miscellaneous materials chiefly concerning Andrew A. Lipscomb, Chancellor of the University of Georgia, and his son, Francis Adgate Lipscomb, class of 1866 and later Professor of Belles Lettres. There are eight typescripts of poems by A. A. Lipscomb on various topics. Class notes and literary society speeches of F. A. Lipscomb during his terms at the University are present as well as his complete lecture book for British literature (1872-1873). In addition there is a small group of correspondence between father and son. There is also a small amount of correspondence between Mrs. M. A. Lipscomb and David C. Barrow concerning the establishment of the Crawford W. Long infirmary on the University campus. Also present is a genealogy of the "Descendants of John Hall and Mary Parker of Maryland," compiled by H. M. Chapman of Washington, D. C., in 1898.
