Abstract Collier Cobb, geologist and professor at the University of North Carolina, was born in 1862 in Wayne County, N.C., the eldest of the seven children of Martha Louisa Cobb and Needham Bryan Cobb, a Baptist minister and the first person to receive a Master's degree from the University of North Carolina in 1856. Collier Cobb attended Wake Forest College, 1878-1880, and the University of North Carolina briefly in 1880. In 1879, he completed his School Map of North Carolina, which was adopted by the State Board of Education and went through six editions. From 1889 to 1886, he taught school. From 1885 to 1889, he studied at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Annisquan, Mass., and at Harvard University, where he studied geology and also worked as an assistant on the United States Geological Survey. In 1892, he returned to Chapel Hill to become assistant professor of geology at the University of North Carolina. He eventually became head of the Geology Department, retiring in 1933. Besides teaching at the University, Cobb was also involved in community activities, especially those relating to schools. Cobb was married first Mary Lindsay Battle, with whom he had three children (William Cobb, Collier Cobb Jr., and Mary Louisa Cobb), second Lucy Battle, a cousin of his first wife; and third Mary Knox Gatlin of Little Rock, Ark. Cobb's sister, Lucy M. Cobb, was a writer, genealogist, and active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and his daughter, Mary Louisa Cobb, was chief of the Correspondence Bureau of the UNC Extension Division, 1922-1954. The collection chiefly consists of materials relating to the lives and work of Collier Cobb and his sister, Lucy M. Cobb, but there are also materials relating to Collier Cobb's father, Needham Bryan Cobb; Collier Cobb's three wives; his daughter, Mary Louisa Cobb, especially while she was attending Fassifern, a school for girls at Hendersonville, N.C.; his son, Collier Cobb Jr.; and other members of the Cobb family. Included are letters and related materials, both personal and professional. Among the correspondents are botanist Harriet E. Freeman of Boston and geographer/botanist Roland M. Harper. There are also clippings relating to the Cobb family or to scientific subjects and writings by Lucy M. Cobb; Collier Cobb, including a book manuscript on evolution and biographical sketches of Kemp Plummer Battle, Maria Edgeworth, Nicholas Marcellus Hentz, Joseph Austin Holmes, George Horton, Matthew Fontaine Maury, Denison Olmsted, Laura Battle Philips, William George Randall, and others; as well as journals, account books, address books, a commonplace book, a recipe book, and a family Bible with annotations and enclosed ephemera. Some of the volumes relate to Needham Bryan Cobb's ministerial activities before, during, and after the Civil War. Pictures are of members of Cobb family members, friends, and relatives; the family's Mount Auburn Plantation; the Cobb family homes in Chapel Hill; the University of North Carolina campus; geological field expeditions; and travels. Included is a series of glass plate negatives depicting the University of North Carolina campus, people, travels to Alaska and China, and other subjects. There are also maps; childhood drawings; genealogical materials relating to Lucy M. Cobb's career as genealogical researcher for hire; financial and legal documents belonging to Needham Bryan Cobb; diplomas, including the first Master's degree awarded by the University of North Carolina; and other items. The Addition of 2009 includes Collier Cobb correspondence, writings, and other materials, as well as materials relating to the Chapel Hill, N.C., community activities of Collier Cobb Jr. and his wife, Emma Cobb.

Collier Cobb, geologist and professor at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, N.C., was born 21 March 1862 at Mount Auburn Plantation in Wayne County, N.C. He was the eldest of the seven children of Martha Louisa Cobb and Needham Bryan Cobb, a minister. He received schooling at home until attending Wake Forest College, 1878-1880. He attended the University of North Carolina briefly in 1880. From 1871 to 1875, he printed a small newspaper, "The Home Journal," on his own press. In 1879, he completed his School Map of North Carolina, which was adopted by the State Board of Education and went through six editions. From 1880 until 1886, he taught school, first at Locke Craig's Preparatory School in Chapel Hill in 1880, then in Durham in 1881, Waynesville in 1882, and finally in Wilson at the Wilson Graded School, 1883-1886. During the summer of 1885, Cobb studied at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Annisquan, Mass.

From 1886 until 1889, Cobb attended Harvard University, where he studied geology. From 1886 to 1892, he worked as an assistant on the United States Geological Survey. After receiving his degree from Harvard, he tutored and lectured part-time at MIT and Boston University until 1892, when he returned to Chapel Hill to become assistant professor of geology at the University of North Carolina. He eventually became head of the Geology Department, retiring in 1933. Besides teaching at the University, Cobb was also involved in community activities, especially those relating to schools.

In January of 1891, Collier Cobb married Mary Lindsay Battle of Lilesville, N.C. They had three children: William Cobb, born in 1891; Collier Cobb Jr., born in 1893; and Mary Louisa Cobb, born in 1899. Mary Battle Cobb died in November of 1900. In 1904, Collier Cobb married Lucy Battle, a Mary's cousin. Lucy Battle died in 1905. In 1910, Cobb married Mary Knox Gatlin of Little Rock, Ark.

Collier Cobb's sister, Lucy M. Cobb, was a writer, an avid genealogist and a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. During the 1940s through the 1960s, she worked as a genealogist for hire, doing research on family histories.

Collier Cobb's daughter, Mary Louisa Cobb, was chief of the Correspondence Bureau of the UNC Extension Division from 1922 until 1954. From 1954 until her retirement in 1960, she served the Bureau as a part-time associate head.

Other materials in the collection relate to the lives of Collier Cobb's father, Needham Bryan Cobb; Collier Cobb's first wife, Mary Battle Cobb; his second wife, Lucy Plummer Battle Cobb; his third wife, Mary Knox Gatlin Cobb; his daughter, Mary Louisa Cobb; his son, Collier Cobb Jr.; and other members of the Cobb family.

Series 1, Correspondence and Related Materials, includes family letters; letters to and from friends and professional associates of Collier Cobb; bills and receipts; greeting cards, calling cards, announcements, invitations, and programs; and miscellaneous notes, manuscripts and genealogical papers. Prior to 1880, there is only one folder of papers, the content of which is mixed. From 1880 to 1886, the letters contain mostly news of Collier Cobb's immediate family; references to Needham Bryan Cobb's ministry and to various aspects of church business; references to the publication and sale of Collier's School Map of North Carolina and his various teaching jobs, including some comments on the graded school question in North Carolina. From 1886 to 1891, the papers consist largely of letters from Collier Cobb at Harvard University, in which he discusses his health, his courses, work on the Geological Survey, and the state of religion at Harvard University. Papers from 1892-1900 are a mixture of family and professional correspondence, but the family correspondence predominates. There are also scattered letters between Collier and his father, some of which discuss church and educational matters. Papers from 1901 to 1934 continue to be a mixture of family and professional correspondence; after 1900, Collier Cobb's professional correspondence increases steadily. Family correspondence during this period consists largely of letters from Collier Cobb's three children: William Cobb; Collier Cobb Jr.; and Mary Louisa Cobb. Other family correspondents include Cobb's second wife, Mary Knox Gatlin, of Little Rock, Ark., and Cobb's brothers and sisters. Professional correspondence during this time is fairly routine, consisting of letters to and from editors and publishers concerning Collier Cobb's writings; inquiries about equipment for the University of North Carolina Geology Department, such as lantern slides and stereographs; invitations for Cobb to lecture; letters thanking Cobb for complimentary copies of articles; letters from former students and letters of recommendation written on behalf of students; letters from people in North Carolina informing Cobb of various geological phenomena they had observed; letters from women seeking teaching positions in the Chapel Hill schools (Cobb was on the School Board); and letters to and from professional associates of Cobb, such as botanist Harriet E. Freeman of Boston and geographer/botanist Roland M. Harper. Beginning in 1910, there are carbon copies of some of Cobb's outgoing letters. From 1935 forward, the papers consist chiefly of letters to Mary Louisa Cobb and Mary Knox Gatlin Cobb from family and friends, as well as a few carbons of Mary Louisa Cobb's outgoing letters. Correspondents include Penelope Williams Cobb, Lucy M. Cobb, the Arkansas branch of Mary Knox Gatlin Cobb's family, and Mary Knox Gatlin Cobb's grandchildren, Mary Martha Cobb and Carol Cobb.

Series 2, Clippings, consists of newspaper clippings pertaining to members of the Cobb family and to various geological and scientific subjects.

Series 3, Writings, contains writings by Collier Cobb and others and consists of three subseries: 3.1, Geological and Scientific Writings and Classroom Materials, which includes drafts of books, articles, lectures, notes, and excerpts on geological and scientific subjects, including a number of writings on the geology and geography of North Carolina; 3.2, Writings on China, which includes notes on the geography and geology of China and drafts of "The Loess Deposits of China"; 3.3, Biographical Writings, which includes biographical articles, mostly by Collier Cobb with a few articles by others kept by Cobb for reference purposes; and 3.4, Other Writings, which includes various writings by Collier Cobb, his children, and others on subjects outside geology or biography, as well as miscellaneous classroom materials. Also included are several issues of "The Home Journal."

Series 4, Volumes, includes journals, memo books, pocket notebooks, account books, and address books belonging to Needham Bryan Cobb, Collier Cobb, Mary Knox Gatlin Cobb, Mary Louisa Cobb, and Penelope Williams Cobb. Also included are a commonplace book, a recipe book, a recitation record book, a roll book, the School Census for the town of Chapel Hill for the year 1902, and scrapbooks.

Series 5, Pictures, consists of pictures and picture albums containing images of Collier Cobb, Mary Louisa Cobb, William Battle Cobb, Collier Cobb Jr., Penelope Williams Cobb, Lucy Battle Cobb, Mary Knox Gatlin Cobb, other Cobb relatives and friends, University of North Carolina faculty, other friends and colleagues of Collier Cobb, animals, Mount Auburn Plantation, the Cobb family homes in Chapel Hill, N.C., the University of North Carolina campus, geological field expeditions, and travels to Japan, West Africa, Mexico, Alaska, Hawaii, and other places in the United States. Other images include photographs by W. E. Hook and unidentified men, women, and children.

Series 7, Other Materials, includes maps, childhood drawings by Collier Cobb, ephemera, and other materials.

ADDITIONS: Additions have been arranged in the same way as the original deposit, but have not been incorporated into it. The Addition of 1980 consists chiefly of the materials of Lucy M. Cobb, and includes correspondence and related materials of Lucy M. Cobb and her family and friends; clippings; writings by Lucy M. Cobb and others; a scrapbook of clippings and poems; and pictures of identified and unidentified people and places. Two new series are included in this addition, Series 6, Genealogical Materials, which consists of materials relating to Lucy Maria Cobb's work as a genealogical researcher; and Series 7, Other Materials, which consists of other papers and materials relating to Lucy M. Cobb's life and work, her involvement in the Daughters of the American Republic, and her family. The Addition of 1991 is very similar in scope to the Addition of 1980 and includes correspondence; clippings; writings; a family tree book, a postcard album, and a family Bible with annotations and enclosed ephemera; pictures of a United States geological survey and identified and unidentified people and places; genealogical materials; and other materials relating to Lucy M. Cobb's life and work. Other materials in the addition relate to the lives of other members of the Cobb family, particularly Mary Louisa Cobb, Collier Cobb's daughter and Lucy M. Cobb's neice. The Addition of 2005 consists of correspondence and related materials relating to Needham Bryan Cobb, Collier Cobb, and Collier Cobb Jr; writings of Lucy Plummer Battle and Collier Cobb, including four issues of "The Home Journal"; a copy of Lectures in Economic Geology by J. D. Whitney with notes by Collier Cobb; photographs of Collier Cobb as a middle-aged man and as a student at Harvard University; and other materials such as financial and legal papers belonging to Needham Bryan Cobb, five diplomas of Wiliam Horn Battle and Needham Bryan Cobb, one of which was the first Master's degree to be awarded at the University of North Carolina (1856), and other papers. The Addition of April 2006 contains cabinet cards of identified and unidentified people; glass plate negatives depicting the University of North Carolina campus, people, travels to Alaska and China, and other subjects; and one folder of other papers belonging to Collier Cobb. The Addition of August 2006 consists of a 2006 facsimile reprint of Poetical Geography of North Carolina and Other Poems by Needham Bryan Cobb and related materials.

The Addition of 2009 chiefly consists the materials of Collier Cobb and his son, Collier Cobb Jr., as well as a receipt and two volumes relating to other Cobb family members. The Collier Cobb correspondence includes some professional correspondence, but is chiefly with family members, colleagues, and seekers of genealogy information. There are also Collier Cobb's personal notebooks and writings, various printed materials and notes, and an autobiography of Needham Bryan Cobb dedicated to Collier Cobb. The Collier Cobb Jr. papers include materials relating to him and to his wife, Emma Cobb, including letters from professional and personal correspondents, as well as clippings and other printed material, especially regarding their community involvement in Chapel Hill, N.C. There are also photographs of University of North Carolina faculty, Collier Cobb as a Harvard University student and in his 40s, Nancy Cobb in a parade, and Collier Cobb Jr. and Emma Cobb at home and aboard a cruise ship.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 1. Correspondence and Related Materials, 1814-1975 and undated.

About 3900 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Correspondence and related materials including family letters; letters to and from friends and professional associates of Collier Cobb; bills and receipts; greeting cards, calling cards, announcements, invitations, and programs; and miscellaneous notes, manuscripts, and genealogical papers.

Prior to 1880, there is only one folder of papers. From 1880 to 1886, letters contain mostly news of Collier Cobb's immediate family; references to Needham Bryan Cobb's ministry and to various aspects of church business; references to the publication and sale of Collier's School Map of North Carolina and his various teaching jobs, including some comments on the graded school question in North Carolina.

From 1886 to 1891, papers consist largely of letters from Collier Cobb at Harvard University, in which he discusses his health, his courses, work on the Geological Survey, and the state of religion at Harvard University.

Papers, 1892-1900, are a mixture of family and professional correspondence, but the family correspondence predominates. There are numerous letters from Mary Battle Cobb's mother, Mrs. William H. Battle II, and from her sister Pattie in Lilesville. Beginning in 1895, Mrs. Battle and Pattie occasionally enclose letters from Pattie's brother Kemp, who had gone to Texas to seek work and wrote from Alvin, El Paso, and Chispa, Tex. There are also numerous letters between Mary and Collier, particularly to Collier from Mary while she was visiting her family in Lilesville. Mary was ill and remained in Lilesville through most of 1900; she died there in November 1900. There is also correspondence between Collier and his father, some of which discuss church and educational matters.

Papers, 1901-1934, continue to be a mixture of family and professional correspondence; after 1900, Collier Cobb's professional correspondence increases steadily. Family correspondence during this period consists largely of letters from Collier Cobb's three children--William, Collier Jr., and Mary Louisa. In early letters, the children discuss their schooling: William and Collier Jr. attended Warrenton High School and Mary Louisa attended Fassifern, a girl's school in Henderson, N.C. Later letters discuss their professional lives. Other family correspondents include Cobb's second wife, Mary Knox Gatlin of Little Rock, Ark., and Cobb's brothers and sisters. Professional correspondence during this time is fairly routine, consisting of letters to and from editors and publishers concerning Collier Cobb's writings; inquiries about equipment for the University of North Carolina Geology Department, such as lantern slides and stereographs; invitations for Cobb to lecture; letters thanking Cobb for complimentary copies of articles; letters relating to students; letters from people in North Carolina informing Cobb of various geological phenomena they had observed; letters from women seeking teaching positions in the Chapel Hill schools (Cobb was on the School Board); and letters to and from professional associates of Cobb, such as botanist Harriet E. Freeman of Boston and geographer/botanist Roland M. Harper. Beginning in 1910, there are carbon copies of some of Cobb's outgoing letters.

From 1935 forward, the papers consist chiefly of letters to Mary Louisa Cobb and Mary Knox Gatlin Cobb from family and friends, as well as a few carbons of Mary Louisa Cobb's outgoing letters. Correspondents include Penelope Williams Cobb, Lucy M. Cobb, members of the Arkansas branch of Mary Knox's family, and Mary Knox's grandchildren, Mary Martha Cobb and Carol Cobb.
