Scope and Content Note
The Dunn Family Papers, 1932-2006, chiefly contain items concerning the courtship and marriage of Macel [also referred to as Maysel] Caphine Cross (1917-2003) and A. Henry Dunn (1914-1995) of Dumas, Arkansas. Correspondence between Macel and Henry discuss her studies and activities at Dumas High School, her friends, and social life in town during the Great Depression. Undated letters mention a dust storm, her concern about Henry’s drinking, and Macel's disapproval of him quitting his job.
This collection also contains photographs, newspaper clippings, Valentine’s Day cards (including one with a stereotypical depiction of an African American girl), a brief history of Dumas, Arkansas, family photographs (mostly from the 1930s), and a biographical sketch of the Dunn family written by the collection donor.
