Biography / History
Mary Frances Jewell McVey was born in Berry, Harrison County, Kentucky on December 23, 1889. She was the second child and only daughter of Asa Hickman Jewell (1857-1937) and Elizabeth Lizzie Sayre Berry Jewell (1861-1941). Her older brother was John Berry Jewell (1886-1946), and the younger was Robert Bob Berry Jewell (1896-1986).
By 1900, the Jewell family was living in Lexington, Ky. There Frances attended Sayre School before going to the Baldwin School in Bryn Mawr, Penn. in 1907. She graduated in 1909, and attended Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. from 1909-1913. In 1915, she began teaching English at State University, Lexington, Ky. which became the University of Kentucky in 1916. She taught English there from 1915 to 1921. From 1917-1918 she attended Columbia University in New York, N.Y., where she received her Master of Arts in English Literature.
From 1921-1923 she was Dean of Women at the University of Kentucky. She resigned this position in 1923 when she married Dr. Frank LeRond McVey, president of the University. She was actively involved in promoting the University during the 1920s and 1930s and was well-known for entertaining at the University President's home, Maxwell Place. She also continued to devote herself to improving social conditions and providing opportunities for the less fortunate through her service to the YWCA, The Frontier Nursing Service, the International Club, the University of Kentucky Women's Club, and the Lexington Junior League. She also served as an alumna member on the Vassar Board of Trustees. She was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws from the University of Kentucky in 1940.

Scope and Content
The Jewell family papers (1814-1984; 17.7 cubic feet, 46 boxes) consist of correspondence, school-related papers, and ephemera and artifacts relating to Frances Jewell McVey and her family, the Jewell family of Lexington, Ky., Jessamine County, Ky., and Berry, Ky.
Frances Jewell McVey's series comprises the bulk of the papers and include her personal, business, and civic interests and connections. Her correspondence with family and friends particularly documents her youth and young adult years. The bulk of the incoming letters were written by her mother, Lizzie Berry Jewell (1904-1924 and undated) and close friends from Lexington, Ky. (1903-1937 and undated), the Baldwin School (1908-1917 and undated) and Vassar College (1909-1913). Frances' letters to her mother (1907-1913) and brother (1908) during her years at boarding school and college are also present in the series. Indexes and subject headings to Frances Jewell McVey and Lizzie Berry Jewell's correspondence (undated) are included in the collection. Other incoming letters include those sent to Frances by fiance and husband, Frank LeRond McVey, during their courtship and early marriage (1922-1924); letters from Bob C., stationed in France and England during World War I (1917-1920); and a few brief notes from former State University, Lexington, Kentucky (later University of Kentucky) president James Kennedy Patterson (1916-1919). An outgoing letter written from Frances to Dr. Edward O. Guerrant at age twelve is one of the earliest items in the collection and provides an early view of her interest in being of service to others. There are also travel souvenirs, postcards (including ones made from leather), and multiple drafts and proof copies of the book, Uncle Will of Wildwood (1974), co-authored by Robert Berry Jewell and Frances Jewell McVey (1939-1974 and undated).
Jewell family businesses and financial activities (1810s-1980s), particularly Robert Berry Jewell's involvement with standard bred horse breeding and racing (1909-1982), are documented throughout the collection through clippings; correspondence; farm, farm products, livestock; household accounts and catalogs; estate records; a land indenture, and photographs of horses. Included in the business records is a listing of slave lots and the names of those they were allotted to (undated, [after 1855]), including the name James Jewell, as well as a letter from Ty Cobb to Robert Jewell (1940).
The collection also includes Asa Hickman Jewell's school essays and report cards from Forest Academy (near Louisville, Ky., 1873?-1874) and Central University (Richmond, Ky., 1875-1878?), as well as his travel journal from a 1910 voyage to Europe. Other family members represented in the collection include John Michael Berry, James Jewell, John Berry Jewell, John Moses Jewell, John L. Jewell, and Marianne Dolly Reed. The ephemera includes a bawdy poem (1961) written on the occasion of the destruction of Belle Brezing's house in Lexington, Ky. where she operated a brothel.

Letters from Frances Jewell McVey to friends and acquaintances, [1902?]-1913 and undated

Comprised of letters addressed to Dr. Edward O. Guerrant (1902?), Catherine Davis (1905), Laura J. Wylie (1913), Mr. A. F. Adams (undated), and Margaret [?], (undated). Also contains a letter written in 1913, addressed to Dearest Love. There is a reasonable chance that this was written to Lilias Wheeler, as there is a long letter in a similar tone in Lilias' folder to Frances. The letter to Dr. Guerrant, a pioneer missionary in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky, is the earliest dated item in Frances Jewell's correspondence. Twelve year old Frances states that she is the secretary of a little home missionary society that would like to sponsor a mountain girl to school. She also states that she plans to become a missionary in the mountains someday.
