Please contact the Archives for assistance.
The Butler Papers deal primarily with his duties on the Norfolk City Council from 1923-1938 as a representative of Brambleton (parking meters; race relations; Foreman Field; city anniversaries; Museum of Arts and Sciences; Blue Laws; study of schools); his service on the Local Draft Board from 1917-1922 (alleged draft evaders, delinquents, deserters); personal and family papers (tax returns, financial records, obituaries, condolences); pamphlets and brochures of Norfolk; clippings from Norfolk newspapers; and, a scrapbook.
Correspondence is arranged chronologically, or in original order as clipped together. Many carbons are on the backs of discarded "Seaboard Air Line Railway, Portsmouth, VA, Passing Report."
Questions on literary property rights should be directed to the Special Collections Librarian.
All clippings in Folders 16-19 and items in Scrapbook too brittle to consult without destroying them. Note availability on microfilm at Kirn Memorial and Old Dominion University libraries.
