Thomas J. Rusk Collection, 1826-1978
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: This collection was formed by gathering items from a variety of sources. The family Bible of Thomas J. Rusk, gift of a descendant, and a letter written by him to his brother, David, were transferred to us by the Stone Fort Museum. The letter was written during the same time period, that of Rusk's service as a U. S. Senator in Washington, as letters in the Department in the Thomas J. Rusk Letters collection. The "Heritage" columns by Lucille Fain which appeared in the Daily Sentinel during late 1975 and early 1976, were inspired by and based on Rusk's letters in the Department and in other repositories.
