Henry Fulton Griffin, 1867-1893, A Portrait through Correspondence

fulton-bookThis book is a collection of letters, primarily written to or by Fulton Griffin, a bright, young, noble scholar from North Carolina. The correspondence reflects not only Fulton’s daily pursuits but also his very promising future, cut short by a tragic accident at the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893. Letters from family, friends, co-workers, and classmates, provide a glimpse into post-reconstruction America in the 19th Century and Fulton’s own experiences living and working in Washington D.C. amid the newsmakers and entertainers of the day. An index of over 250 family names appearing in the book serves as an aid to genealogists. Over 250 endnotes, 70 with photographs, have been included, identifying people, places, and events referenced in the letters. An additional 30 photographs depict Fulton’s family, friends and other documents pertaining to him. Softbound, 498 pages. $26.95.
