Scope and Contents: The Beverly Burbage Papers reflect the interest that Burbage had regarding the pottery of Charles F. Decker and family. Burbage spent a great deal of time researching the life of the Decker family as well as the pottery produced. The collection of research on the Decker family pottery documents an important and often little-studied industry that operated in Washington County, Tennessee in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and its’ impact on the local largely rural community. The collection documents the life and artistic work of Charles Decker and his family through photographs, newspaper articles, correspondence, company ledger sheets, and other memorabilia.
