Mickey Mantle Slimp Papers

Identifier: AppMs-174

Scope and Contents

The Slimp Papers consist of research material and drafts of a paper entitled "The Foundation of Tennessee Quakerism, 1786-1810." The paper was prepared for credit in an Individual Study in humanities course (Humanities 4910) while the donor was an undergraduate student at East Tennessee State University (1972-1976). The paper was apparently submitted for publication in Quaker History, the official publication of the Friends Historical Association (est. 1873), but was not published.

The papers include correspondence, photocopies from manuscript sources, photocopies of published sources, photocopies of newspaper clippings, notes used in the preparation of the paper, and miscellaneous material. The papers date from 1955 to 1982, but some are undated.
