Lizzie Chambers Hall was the wife of W. T. Hall, who was the pastor of Baptist churches in Danville, Virginia from 1897-1907, and in Roxborough, Pennsylvania from 1913- 1928.
The Lizze Chambers Hall Papers contain photographs, scattered family correspondence, and a scrapook which Lizzie compiled.
The scrapbook contains news papers clippings, pictures, religious tracts and broadsides, printed and manuscript poems (some of which were written by Lizzie herself ) and other memorabilia. It is a fascinating record of certain elements of African American family life and religious practices in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
