Nelle Womack Hines Collection Provenance and Arrangement
After Nelle Womack Hines' death in 1963, her son and daughter-in-law, Emmett Womack Hines and Frederica Boatright Hines lived in the home, "Greenacre," on Tatnall Street, Milledgeville. Emmett died in 1975 and Frederica stayed in the home until her death in 1992. The grandson and granddaughter of Nelle Womack Hines, Emmett Womack Hines II and Martha Hines, sold the home and donated the Nelle Womack Hines Papers to the Museum and Archives of Georgia Education. In June and July 1992 the Hines Papers were arranged and described by a Georgia College student working at MAGE.
The boxes were transferred to Special Collections June 1999 where practicum graduate student, Penny Howard, re-foldered, arranged and described the collection. Wherever possible, the original arrangement was kept. The original accession numbers are printed on the folders next to a new set of numbers in numerical order making the collection more accessible. Books were removed from the boxes and placed in a separate container. Some papers noted in the original accession sheet are missing.
In arranging the collection, it was found that the order placed on the records, initially by accession number, was changed. Materials were moved from box to box and sometimes papers were moved from one folder to another. An attempt was made to maintain both the accession number provenance and the provenance of the boxes. Any changes made to rectify the double arrangement are noted in the finding aid.
Additional material from the Vertical Files and the Presidents' Correspondence to supplement the collection was added to Boxes 1 and 2 and noted as not part of the original provenance in the finding aid.
