The Radford family was a distinctly Southern family, and a good portion of it was situated near Atlanta in the town of Monroe. They lived in a rural setting, and several people in the family had farms. One Radford family man helped manage the Monroe Cotton Mills. Most certainly, the Radford family was a strong Southern family made up of many individuals who had firmly held convictions and belifs.
The contents of this collection center on the Radford family, primarily in the late 19th century. James Osgood Andrew Radfood has several Civil War letters in this collection, as do various other family members in the war period. There are a few letters dated after the Civil War. Rosalie Radford Stillwell has several belongings in this collection - a memoir and notebook, dated in the early 20th century. Likewise, there is a recipe and account book from the late 19th. Other assorted items include receipts, indentures, wills, resolutions, stock certificates, photos, portrait presentations, and clippings. A videotape from 1933 about the Radford family is contained in an oversized box.
