Scarborough Gifts: Morgan and Carn Papers
Scope and Contents
Several booklets, pamphlets, and other catalogues pertaining to past history of Florida State University and its predecessor institutions. Especially interesting is a catalogue of the Seminary West of the Suwannee River, 1892-1893, and a Programme of the 42nd Annual Commencement of the Seminary held at Munro's Opera House, June 9, 1893. Many names familiar to Tallahassee appear on this program and in the catalogue. At this time the Board of Visitors was made up of four prominent citizens of north Florida: E.P. Dismukes of Quincy, William Miller of Port Washington, Samuel Pasco of Monticello, and E.J. Vann of Madison. Unique among Mr. Scarborough's gifts is one of Hazeltine's miniature Almanacs, the Pocketbook Almanac of 1893, measuring 1.5x2 inches, apparently distributed by Dr. J.M. Carn. However, this particular tiny Almanac bears evidence of having been kept by Dr. Carn as a sort of Birthday Book, as family names were written on a number of the pages.
