expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

William L. Spoon (1862-1942) was a civil engineer and good roads advocate of Alamance County, N.C. Spoon was the son of Georg Monroe and Nancy Stafford Spoon. Following the death of Georg Monroe Spoon during the Civil War, Nancy Stafford Spoon married Michael Shoffner, a farmer and miller of Hartshorn, Alamance County, N.C., on whose farm William L. Spoon spent his early youth. Spoon began his education in the public schools of Coble Township, later moved to the Oakdate Academy for one term and the Friendship School in Coble Township for two years. He turned to farming on his stepfather's land and taught in public schools in his neighborhood until 1886 when he entered a college preparatory course at Graham Normal College (later Elon College) at Graham, N.C. The following year, at the age of 25, he entered the University of North Carolina, graduating in 1891 with B.S. and B.E. degrees.

After graduation, Spoon served as an engineer with the North Carolina Geological Survey, supervising diamond drilling for coal and marble at various locations throughout the state, 1891-1892. He also surveyed and produced a map of Alamance County, N.C., 1893-1894. Following this venture, he entered into private road work, largely in Alamance and Orange counties, N.C.

In July 1895, Spoon went to Texas where he obtained a teaching position in the town of Moody. After summering in North Carolina, he returned to Texas in August but was forced to return again to North Carolina after failing to find work. Upon his return, he operated as an independent engineer until June 1897 when he became a road superintendent and county engineer for Alamance County, N.C., a position he held until January 1901.

During 1901 Spoon traveled in North Carolina and Tennessee as a salesman and road machinery-construction expert for the Good Roads Machinery Company of Kennett Square, Pa. Later the same year, he was with the Good Roads Train, staging road construction demonstrations in South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama. In 1902 he engaged in private engineering work for Erwin Cotton Mills Company of Durham, N.C. He then received an appointment as a special agent for the United States Department of Agriculture Office of Public Roads, an affiliation he maintained with various promotions until April 1909. After leaving the Department of Agriculture, he became a highway engineer for the North Carolina Geological Survey and served as the highway engineer for Forsyth County, N.C., 1911-1913. He later returned to the office of Public Roads as a senior highway engineer, 1913-1920.

Though Spoon officially left federal service in 1920 and became a partner in the firm of Spoon and Lewis, Consulting Engineers, in Greensboro, N.C., he continued to receive assignments from the Office of Public Roads until 1931, when age regulations barred him from further service.

Spoon was married to Susan Addeline Vernon Neville (called Addie) in 1897. They had two children: Nancy Miriam and William Mozart. After Addie's death in 1936, Spoon married Ruth Baldwin in 1940. A daughter, Willie Ruth, was born in 1943, shortly after William L. Spoon's death.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 1. Correspondence, 1858-1957 and undated.

About 16,000 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Includes personal and professional correspondence of William L. Spoon. Personal correspondence is chiefly between Spoon and his first wife, Susan Addeline Vernon Neville Spoon, during periods of seperation. Their letters discuss family matters; farm procedures, yields, and labor problems; saw and grist mill operations; and neighborhood affairs. There is little discussion in these letters of Spoon's work as a highway engineer. There are also numerous personal letters between Spoon and his mother Nancy Stafford Spoon Shoffner prior to his marriage. These describe his work as a diamond drilling supervisor with the North Carolina Geological Survey, 1891-1892, and his sojourns in Texas, 1895 and 1896. There are also letters between the Spoons and their daughter Nancy Miriam, during her childhood and while she was a student at Salem College, Winston-Salem, N.C. Also included in the personal correspondence, are scattered family letters to Nancy Stafford Spoon Shoffner and to Susan Addeline Vernon Neville Spoon. Among additional personal correspondents are Mary Jane Cheek, W. A. Erwin, LaCoste Evans, Caleb G. Cates, Cyrus Kehr, C. M. Scott, J. B. Robertson, J. E. Stafford, and Howard E. Rondthaler.

Professional correspondence is chiefly concerned with William L. Spoon's assignments, administrative matters connected to his position as a highway engineer, and his allocations and expenses. Among Spoon's regular correspondents are supervisors, J. A. Holmes and Joseph Hyde Pratt of the North Carolina Geological Survey, and Logan W. Page, Vernon M. Peirce, and E. W. James of the Office of Public Roads. There are also several letters directed to county commissioners and to road machine and bridge construction firms, particularly the Good Roads Machinery Company of Kennett Square, Pa., and the Virginia Bridge and Iron Company.
