Introduction

Ruby T. Scott (1891-1966), in addition to her duties as Professor of English at Toledo University from 1924 to 1961, had interests in poetry, antique collecting, genealogy, and travel.  The items in her collection reflect those interests.  The largest series of the collection consists of a 19th-century British autograph collection with a focus on women writers.  Other material includes poetry written by Ruby Scott, 19th-century educational ephemera collected by her, and an 18th-century German volume with autographs and color and ink illustrations.

Scope and Content Note

The Ruby T. Scott Collection consists of correspondence, genealogical material, poetry, photographs, and a scrapbook. The size of her personally generated material, however, is small in comparison to that of her collection of autographs and ephemera.

The largest series in the collection is a group of autograph letters and other documents of British origin. Dating from 1690 to 1905, this series was assembled beginning in the 1830s by Mrs. Harriott (Maxwell) White and continued by her nephew J. Maxwell Savage of Liverpool. The content of these autograph letters varies from curt replies to florid gossip. Correspondents include a significant number of fashionable, if forgotten, women authors, aristocrats, military officials, and politicians (see folder list). There are autograph poems by Julia Pardoe, Agnes Strickland, Catherine Stepney, Caroline Norton, and others. The core of the collection of correspondence seems to have been begun by Lady Anne Hamilton (1766-1846), lady-in-waiting to Queen Caroline. Also included are a considerable number of engraved portraits, all but one of them of women writers or aristocrats.

One remarkable 18th-century German volume of autographs contains inscriptions in verse and a number of illustrations. These skillful watercolor and ink-line illustrations include common scenes, portraits, and a panorama of a city, probably Nuremberg.

Other ephemera relate to American education. These have evidential value for educational practices about 1800, as the "credit tickets" for one Caroline Frisbie show. Ruby Scott's scrapbook offers us her memories and impressions of school life, written in 1907 as a 16-year-old.

There is little in the collection that reflects Ruby Scott's professional activities as professor of English. Two volumes of poems, some manuscript poems, and a pamphlet, however, provide us with evidence of her creative activity.

Statement of Organization

Material in the Ruby T. Scott Collection is arranged both at the folder level and at the item level. Papers generated by Scott herself are arranged at the folder level. Due to the large number of incoming and outgoing correspondents in the White-Savage autograph series, item-level arrangement has been deemed the most practical for that series. The exceptions to the item-level arrangement in this series are the portraits, unsigned letters, and miscellany.

            The Ruby T. Scott Collection has been arranged in the following sequence:

1.         Material generated by Ruby T. Scott: correspondence, notes, poems.

2.         Material generated by others, collected by Ruby T. Scott.

a. Miscellaneous autographs

b .German autograph book

c. Ephemera

d. White-Savage autograph collection
