Scope and Contents

From the Collection: Letters from Ethel Armes to Robert Jemison Jr. of Birmingham, Alabama, and her brother Edmund Armes. To Jemison she clarifies the publication history of her book, The Story of Coal and Iron in Alabama. In the letter she reminds Jemison of the problems she had in getting the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce to publish it. In reference to a book by Mr. Hornaday, given to her by Jemison, she stated that "the bulk of the data of fully four chapters is taken direct from the Story of Coal and Iron in Alabama and not a sign of credit is given for this." In her letter to her brother, a civilian army officer, she offers advice regarding a transfer or promotion.
