Reverend Roland C. Stubbins (1885-1967) was a prominent Methodist minister of Hillsborough, N.C. He was active in historical and cultural affairs and was a member of the Hillsborough Historical Society and the Audubon Society.
Included in the collection are genealogical notes on the Crutchfield family of Caroline County, Virginia, and Orange County, N.C. These notes were prepared in 1956 by Mrs. Gladys Crutchfield Ferguson of Zwolle, Louisiana.

The newsletters are numbered 1-21 and reflect the activities of the society and historical events in Hillsborough and Orange County.
Also included is a biographical sketch of Reverend Stubbins, his obituary, and leaflets on Hillsborough.
