This collection contains letters sent by Pauline Coad, author of the booklet The Owens-Thomas House Museum, to William Younger and Robert Luck, both of New York City. A copy of the booklet inscribed "For Bill Younger from Pauline Corson Coad" is included with the letters. Pauline Corson Coad's booklet "The Owens-Thomas House Museum" was published and distributed by The Owens-Thomas House Museum Committee of the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences, Inc. in 1959. The booklet details a brief history of the home completed by English architect William Jay in 1819. The house was acquired by the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1951 and has since been maintained as a museum. Letters date from the 1960s-1980s and detail Coad's social life in Savannah, Georgia. Some clippings from Savannah newspapers and poems by Dayton Kohler and Elinor Wylie are also included.
