Edwards, Beeson, et al. Archive of postcards and letters. Forty items, mostly postcards, dated 1895 to 1950s, sent to and from families in Glenola — an unincorporated area in Randolph County, North Carolina (currently in the High Point postal area).

This area is rich in Quaker history; a couple of the writers use “thy” language and one card is addressed to Westtown, Penn., which has a Quaker school.

Letters and cards comprise family and work news (farming, mechanic, and hospital jobs), post-school (young adult) gossip (1942), birthday and holiday greetings, and travel. Picture postcards include Aberdeen (A&R depot), Asheboro (courthouse), Greensboro, Goldsboro, Lenoir, High Point, Raleigh, and Vernon in North Carolina; Beach Haven in N.J., Lake City in S.C., and Washington, D.C. A detailed list is available.

Items in Good condition: edges worn, envelopes torn open, some foxing.
