Collection Overview

The collection includes personal, professional and official material, primarily correspondence and memoranda, concerning Holly's training and his subsequent career in Duke's History Dept. and his service on the Honors Committee of the Undergraduate Faculty Council. There is correspondence with Harold Lewis, E. M. Carroll and other historians which documents the way in which the department sought to bring along young scholars; other letters illustrate concerns the faculty had over matters such as segregation and race relations in the 1950s and 1960s. Some letters describe preparations for E. M. Carroll's Festschrift. There is a small amount of family correspondence and material relating to Hollyday's teaching and professional activities, such as National Archives conferences and the Southern Historical Association. Also included are the records of the Undergraduate Faculty Council Committee on Honors which Hollyday chaired in the late 1960s and probably received records from his predecessors. The collection ranges in date from 1943-1971.
