Collection Highlight:

In 1975, the UNF Library acquired a portion of the estate of Eartha Mary Magdalene White (1876-1974). Eartha White, a prominent African-American resident of Jacksonville, Florida, was widely known for her humanitarian and philanthropic endeavors in northeast Florida. The long life of this remarkable woman is documented in this collection of more than one thousand personal papers, letters, documents, notes, photographs, and other memorabilia. A significant amount of her business and personal correspondence is also included.

About The Collection

The collections described cover the history, politics, and culture of the Jacksonville, Florida geographical area.

Notable collections of prominent individuals and organizations from Northeast Florida include the Barnett Banks Collection and the personal papers of Eartha M. M. White, John E. Mathews, Jr., Arthur N. Sollee, Joe Carlucci, William M. Jones, and Richard A. Martin.
