Biographical/Historical Note

Ilah Dunlap Jordan Little bequest approximately a half million dollars to the University of Georgia Libraries in 1939. The Ilah Dunlap Little Memorial Library currently houses the Main Library on the University of Georgia campus.


Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of four pages from the family record section of the Jordan family bible. These pages were removed from the bible, which was left by Mrs. Ilah Dunlap Jordan Little on instructions from the director of the Libraries, Mr. W. P. Kellam. The bible, itself, being in extremely poor condition, was not retained. These pages contain birth, death, and marriage records of the Jordan family. These were the only records in the bible.
