Description: The Harry Fletcher Brown Collection, spanning the years 1881-1960 (bulk dates 1910- 1952), contains correspondence, newspaper clippings, speeches, business cards, legal documents, printed material, ephemera, a photograph, World War I medal, and programs. The collection is small—ten folders and a scrapbook, yet the material gives an overview of his life from high school days in 1880s to his adulthood to his death in 1944. Much of the content focuses on Brown’s career at the E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company, his philanthropy, and the outpouring of response after his death.
