Abstract The collection documents several generations of the related Culp and Browne families of Union, S.C., and Johnston, S.C. The two families are related through the marriage of chemist Francis Bartow Culp (1898-?) and Agnes Nora Dunlap Browne Culp (1908-2008), whose extensive correspondence from the 1930s through the 1960s forms a large part of the collection. Also included are family letters, financial documents, photographs, photograph albums with tintypes and cartes de visite, travel diaries and ephemera from European trips in the early twentieth century, manuscript cookbooks from the 1850s and 1930s, genealogical material including an application for the Daughters of the American Revolution, and mid and late nineteenth-century plantation journals possibly from the Culp House, which was built for merchant Benjamin Dudley Culp (1821-1885) and his wife Cornelia Meng Culp (1830-1888). The antebellum journals contain references to enslaved people. Acquired as part of the Southern Historical Collection.
