Thomas John Moore Papers, 1874-1901   

| Manuscripts Gifts 2006 | Front Page 2006 | Previous Issues | Friends of the Library |

Six manuscripts, 1874, 1877-1879, 1893, and 1901, of Thomas John Moore (1843-1919) comprise a record of apples, pears, peaches, figs, grapes, strawberries, and other fruit-bearing plants set out in Moore’s Spartanburg County, South Carolina, orchard, together with notations on the placement of plants and time of harvest.

A March 1901 list of plants seemingly identifies pear and peach trees purchased by Moore from nurseryman J[ohn] Van Lindley, of Pomona Hill, Guilford County, North Carolina.

The handwritten pages were interleaved in a copy of William N. White’s Gardening for the South, or How to Grow Vegetables and Fruits (New York, 1868 rev. ed.), one of the first agricultural handbooks published for Southern gardeners.
