Everette C. Toms collection

Identifier: UA 29.012

Scope and Contents

This collection includes three pieces of correspondence: a letter to Toms from the Bureau of Education regarding his inquiry in obtaining a teaching position in the Philippines, a letter from the managing editor of the Georgian American regarding a mat of David Odom (included), and a letter of reference written about Toms by Appalachian State Teachers College physics professor A. Antonakos. There is also an ephemeral item likely removed from a scrapbook and six photographs. Photograph subjects include fellow student Henry Becton, an unidentified woman, and a Do-X German float plane. There are also three photographs taken by Matthew Hanna in the Middle East (potentially all in Iraq). The context of one is unclear, but the others are of individuals. One is captioned as being of Assyrians. The other is captioned "This is the whooppee [hijab] of the mohammedians [sic] during their Holliday [sic]."
