Size About 3,000 items (15.0 linear feet)
Abstract Clarke family of North Carolina; the New Hampshire-based Moulton family; and New Bern, N.C., native photographer, Bayard Wootten are included in the collection. In 1886, Mary Devereux Clarke, daughter of the prominent North Carolina poet Mary Bayard Clarke and Major William J. Clarke, married George Moulton, a traveling salesman. George Moulton came from a New Hampshire farming family headed by Nathan and Sarah Moulton. Mary's daughter, Bayard Morgan Wootten, learned photography as a means of supporting herself after she and her husband divorced. While Chief of Publicity for the North Carolina National Guard, Bayard set up a studio at Fort Bragg, N.C. After working in New York City, she returned to North Carolina and went into partnership with her brother George C. Moulton. The Wootten-Moulton studio became the official photographer for the UNC Playmakers and yearbook. George and sister Celia Moulton helped Bayard run studios in New Bern and Chapel Hill while she was taking pictures on location. Bayard sold the Chapel Hill studio in 1954 and lived in New Bern until her death in 1959. Papers of the Wootten, Moulton, and Clarke families chiefly consist of correspondence among family members. Clarke family correspondence discusses Major William J. Clarke's experiences during the Civil War and the literary activities of Mary Bayard Clarke. Moulton family correspondence details the daily life of a large family in New Hampshire in the mid-19th century. Letters from Mary Moulton to her husband George, a traveling salesman, describe life in New Bern during the late 19th century. Bayard Wootten's letters to her brother George and her sister Celia discuss matters relating to the Wootten-Moulton photography studios. Letters to and about Bayard Wootten relate to her teaching in the 1890s and early 1900s, her photography and her photography business, her family life, and her son's service in the U.S. Navy and observations of life in China in the late 1920s. There are also diaries and other personal writings of members of the Clarke, Moulton, and Graves families, some poetry by Mary Bayard Clarke, and some writings of a literary or religious nature by unidentified authors. There are financial and legal papers, bills, and receipts generated by members of the Clarke, Moulton, and Wootten families. There is, however, little financial or legal material relating to the operation of the Wootten-Moulton photography studios. Other papers include certificates and licenses, genealogical information, clippings, printed matter, schoolwork, and other materials.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Mary Bayard Devereux, daughter of a prominent lawyer and planter from Raleigh, N.C., married the Mexican War hero, William J. Clarke in 1848. Since Mary struggled with consumption, the couple soon moved to San Antonio, Tex., hoping that the climate would improve her health. There she wrote poetry while William practiced law and became president of the San Antonio and Mexican Gulf Railroad Association. When the railroad went bankrupt several years later, William obtained a commission in the Confederate Army and Mary returned to Raleigh. William served as colonel of the 24th North Carolina Regiment until his capture at Fort Delaware. The Clarkes moved to New Bern in 1868 where Mary served as a private secretary to a North Carolina Supreme Court justice and William practiced law.

The couple had four children. Their oldest son, Francis, became a nationally known educator of the deaf. After teaching at the New York Institute for the Deaf and Dumb and attending Columbia University, Willie E. Clarke, their second son, received his law degree and practiced with his father in New Bern. Their third son, Thomas, became the superintendent of the Washington State School for the Deaf.

Their daughter, Mary Devereux, married Rufus Morgan and had two children with him, Mary Bayard and Sam. Rufus moved to California to farm in 1879, but died from eating poisonous mushrooms before he could send for Mary. Later, Mary married George Moulton, a traveling salesman from Hampton Falls, N.H.

George Moulton came from a New Hampshire-based farming family, headed by Nathan and Sarah Moulton. Along with the farm, Nathan owned a ship named the Schooner Cornelia. Nathan Andrew, their oldest son, became a schoolteacher and their daughters, Sara Elizabeth, Harriet (Hattie), and Emma, married and settled on farms in the area. Mary Josephine married the Reverend Frank Graves and lived in Hampton Falls and Exeter, N.H. George Moulton's traveling led him to New Bern, where he met and married Mary Devereux Clarke Morgan.

George and Mary lived in the Clarke family home in New Bern. George worked for several years as a traveling salesman for Duffy's Drug Store. They had three children: George C., Warren, and Celia. George kept close contact with his sister Mary Josephine, and George C. spent part of his childhood living in New Hampshire and working on her farm.

Mary's daughter from her first marriage, Bayard Morgan, became an instructor at the Georgia School for the Deaf. There she met and married Charles Wootten. The couple had two children--Charles and Rufus--but separated in 1904. Bayard moved back to New Bern and learned photography as a means of supporting herself. Her work impressed the Commanding General at Camp Glenn so much that he appointed Bayard Chief of Publicity for the North Carolina National Guard. She worked in this capacity until World War I, when she set up a studio at Fort Bragg, N.C.. In 1917, Bayard was appointed the official photographer for the Grand Central Palace in New York City and had a studio there. She soon returned to North Carolina and became the official photographer for the University of North Carolina Playmakers in 1919; this led to a contract to take all of the pictures for the University's yearbook.

Bayard's brother, George C. Moulton, and sister, Celia Moulton, helped her run the studios in New Bern and Chapel Hill from the 1920s to the 1940s, while she was taking pictures on location. George C. married Myrtle Disoway and had a daughter named Mary Louise Moulton. Celia married another photographer, Bill Lively, but they were separated in the early 1930s shortly after the birth of their daughter, Celia. Celia Moulton continued to assist Bayard in the Chapel Hill and New Bern studios. Bayard sold the Chapel Hill studio in 1954 and lived in New Bern until her death in 1959.
