Abstract: In 1974, the Episcopal Theological School in Cambridge, Mass., combined with the Divinity School of the Protestant Episcopal Church in Philadelphia (PDS) to form the Episcopal Divinity School, located in Cambridge, Mass. The collection contains letters, circa 1820-1960, of Episcopal bishops from North Carolina. Many were written to Edith Fuller, librarian of the Episcopal Theological School, in response to her request for autographed letters. Others were addressed to Bishop William Lawrence of Cambridge, Mass. There are also two 1924 letters and one 1925 letter by Henry Beard Delany of Raleigh, N.C., the first African American Episcopal bishop and father of Sadie and Bessie Delany, authors of Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters’ First 100 Years. The letters were written to his son, Hubert Delany, in New York; the 1925 letter describes a train trip taken by Henry Beard Delany through the North Carolina mountains.
