Collection Overview

Biography / History
The Postcard Collection was started in 1933 by Margaret Helmsing Tuttle (1895-1988), department librarian at the University of Kentucky from 1926-1963. Impressed by the postcard collection at the St. Louis Public Library, Tuttle suggested the idea of beginning a similar collection to the University of Kentucky Library staff. The Library acquired almost six thousand cards in its first year thanks to contributions from faculty, staff, students and non-University of Kentucky persons interested in the project, and postcards continued to be donated through the next several decades. Notable donors include Dr. Herman L. Donovan (University of Kentucky President from 1941-1956); Dr. Frank L. McVey (University of Kentucky President from 1917-1940) and his wife, Frances Jewell McVey; and Margaret I. King (University of Kentucky librarian from 1912-1949).
Postcard collecting, sometimes referred to as deltiology, is currently one of the most popular collecting hobbies (along with coin and stamp collecting). Postcards were originally manufactured for profit, but became popular as a low-cost form of communication (in the early postcard eras, cards cost only a penny to send). Postcards are regarded by many collectors today as a slice-of-life form of expression, capturing people, places and things in the context of the time in which they were produced and mailed, and cards are still in use today as souvenir items for travelers and economical communication for personal and business purposes.
Scope and Content
The Postcard Collection at the University of Kentucky's Special Collections consists of over 50,000 postcards published between 1890-1990, representing several publishing eras and dozens of subjects, states and countries, and postcard publishers and manufacturers. The postcards exist in a range of sizes, manufacturing processes (e.g., photo postcards, linen, white border, and photochrome), and materials other than paper products (e.g., copper, leather, velvet, tinsel, etc.). Of particular interest to researchers may be the postcards that focus on Kentucky, which range in subject matter from horse racing, coal mining, buildings and monuments, geographic features, industries and famous Kentuckians.

Wilderness Road - Isaac Miller and Family as seen in Wilderness Road. Miller is one of the few anti-slavery men in our Valley. He was friends with Luke Freeman, John and Davie's father, and takes to religion. His wife Lilly we consider quiet and hard-working. Their daugher Avis is kind of sweet on John Freeman. The other daughter is named Mary. Grover, the boy, is restless in farm work, but right keen on hunting and trapping. Until the quarrels of the War, Isaac was well-thought of in the Valley, and even served on our school board. (Printed verso reads: "Paul Green's Great WILDERNESS ROAD. The New York Herald Tribune, Sunday, July 3, 1955, said: 'American drama reached for and found a new dimension . . . the touring American public . . . will be moved by it . . . WILDERNESS ROAD is first rate . . . exciting to the eye and ear . . . the singing . . . is rich and right . . . the dances make one wish for more.' Berea is located on U.S. Highway 25, 38 miles south of Lexington. Indian Fort…

Wilderness Road - Jed Willis and George Farris as seen in Wilderness Road. The Honorable Jed plays politics here. You can see he tries to look like the regular old Kentucky Colonel. He doesn't have a lot of education, but he's a loud talker; he's hot for slavery and quite an orator on the subject. Mrs. Willis has been dead for a long time, few of us even remember her. Farris is a member of our school board. According to rumor in the Valley, there's bad blood between Farris and Squire Sims over a land deal with Farris' father years ago.

Wilderness Road - Squire Sims and Family as seen in Wilderness Road. The Squire is in the center. Daughter Elsie loves both John and Davie Freeman. His wife Julie Mae has a touch of artist in her. The older son Henry is known to be right stingy and a hard bargainer. His wife Annabelle is next to him. Neill, the younger son, is a follower of John Freeman. Jean, the youngest daughter, is about fifteen. Squire is well-to-do, owns slaves, and is justice of the peace. Squire is a solid man, his word is his bond, and he's strong to defend his rights.

Wilderness Road - Uncle Eph Cummings, with Agner Donovan as seen in Wilderness Road. Uncle Eph is distant kin to Elizabeth Freeman. He drinks, he's lazy and shiftless, but he picks the banjo better than any of us and calls the figures at dances, and there's nobody we think more of, in spite of his needing more regeneratin than he's likely to ever get. Abner is his good buddy. You have to watch Abner, he's bad to hold a grudge, but such folks as likes a little liquor say his is good.

Wilderness Road - Chris Slocumb and Wife as seen in Wilderness Road. This is Chris and Mary Slocumb with their oldest boy, Sammy. The Slocumbs always have a new baby; it's kind of hard to keep up on which number it is. Chris isn't a bad man, but he likes Abner Donovan's liquor and Uncle Eph Cummings' company, and maybe Mary has a hard time of it. Chris tries to farm a little, when he stays sober, and he's a fair keen hunter, and they manage to get along, but they don't live as well as some of the folks in the Valley.

Wilderness Road - The Freeman Family as seen in Wilderness Road. Here is Mrs. Freeman and her sons John and Davie. She's a strong character, pious, hard-working, devoted to both her boys. Her life' ambition is to educate them, to which John seems to take more than Davie. John's open and frank natured and just back from a year's schooling in Ohio. He's sort of relentless about what he thinks is right. Davie is hard-working and he's got spirit. He's not much for education, but loves dancing and mountain frolics. He's the darling of the girls in the Valley.
