Religious writing. Collection, 1916 | Illinois History and Lincoln Collections
This collection contains a draft of an encyclopedia article on the island of Molokai written by Joseph Dutton, and a hymn copy of "God of Our Fathers" written by Rudyard Kipling. The Dutton article was sent to the Catholic Encyclopedia in 1911 and discusses the leper colony on the island. This draft copy is annotated by Dutton and was presented to Miss Florence R. Curtis, an instructor for the University of Illinois Library School, in 1916.
These items were transferred from the University Archives in 1971 along with the documents in the Episcopal Diocese of Springfield Letters collection. The items in this collection were separated from the Episcopal letters due to a lack of shared provenance.
