Collection Description

Historical Note

Walter Barnard Hill (1851-1905), lawyer, educator, chancellor at the University of Georgia (1899-1905), resided in Macon and Athens, Georgia. Hill married Sallie Parna Baker and their children included Parna B., Mary Minot, Roger M., and Walter Barnard, Jr.

Scope and Content

The collection consists of the papers of Walter B. Hill and the Hill family from 1818-1941. The papers include correspondence, legal documents from Hill's law practice, notebooks containing Hill's law lectures or class notes, an 1878 diary of Hill's daily activities, photographs, scrapbooks of clippings documenting Hill's career, speeches, and writings of Hill, letterbooks, and printed material pertaining to temperance activities in Georgia and the United States. The correspondence is mostly between family members discussing personal business but a few pertain to Hill's professional career and discuss education in Georgia, politics, or articles written by Hill. Correspondents include Hill's parents Mary Clay Birch Hill and Barnard Hill, his brother Herbert C. Hill, his wife Sallie Parna Barker (Hill), and children Parna B. Hill, Mary Minot (Brown), and Roger M. Hill. The letterbooks (1888-1893 and 1898-1899) mainly pertain to Hill's law practice with the firms of Hill & Harris (Macon, Ga.) or Hill, Harris and Birch (Macon, Ga.), but also include information on Hill's activities with the Georgia Bar Association and temperance societies.

After Hill's death in 1905, the correspondence is between Sallie B. Hill, Parna B. Hill, Mary M. Brown, and Walter B. Hill. Much of the materials pertain to Sallie's work with farmer's wives as part of the University of Georgia's extension service, Parna's activities with canning and poultry clubs through the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, and both women's service with the League of Women Voters of Georgia.
