  • Description
     

    Contained in this collection is a Murray Chair. This chair was created in Nash County, North Carolina by the Murray Family. The family made chairs through five generations during the period of the 1700s to the 1950s. This type of chair is low and was often used next to the hearth or stove. Characteristic marks include three slats across the back; a slightly indented line on above the top slat; tapering wood above and a finial ball on tope of the stile. This particular chair has pegged slats, woven rush seat, painted wood and wear marks on the back of the chair. The wear marks are from when children would have used the chair as a walker.

    The postcards are images of the Moore-Herring Hospital and The Wilson Sanatorium, both located in Wilson, North Carolina.

    The diploma is from The Carolina General Hospital, Inc. for the Training School of Nurses. It features a line drawing image of the hospital. The diploma was originally owned by Ruth Hollaway Curtis.
