Manly Barber Journal on the McClung Digital Collection

Manly Barber Journal

Manly Barber's family allowed this journal to be scanned and placed on the McClung Digital Collection. Manly DeWitt Barber, older brother of architect George Barber, worked with his brother at Barber and Kluttz and also worked as a contractor and builder. In addition, he was a collector of fossils and shells, discovering new specimens he sent to the Smithsonian Institution. The majority of the journal contains the August 1906 account of his trip with other members of the family in three row boats from Knoxville to Chattannoga, 'Camp Hemlock, An Outing in the Great Smokies, August 1909,' and assorted shorter works and drawings.
