Alice Rice Jaffe Papers, 1807-1950
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: The material in this collection relates to people in Alice Jaffe's life, rather than to Alice Jaffe personally. These persons include: Louis I. Jaffe, her husband and editor of the Virginian Pilot from 1919 to 1950; Colonel Henry Rice, her father; and Captain Samuel Davis, an ancestor and ship's captain. A part of the collection includes materials on the first two decades of growth of the Norfolk Division of William and Mary which later became Old Dominion College and then Old Dominion University. These may have been collected by Louis Jaffe in his role as editor or through other Norfolk civic involvements. Materials related to her ancestor, Captain Samuel Davis whose papers date from 1807 to 1817. The remainder of the collection dates from 1919 to 1950.
