Correspondence, 1863 June 3-1893 March 5
Perhaps the most interesting portion of this collection is comprised of the correspondence addressed to Stout. These letters deals with such diverse subjects as requests for transfer between hospitals, reports submitted by various hospital inspectors, cover letters for letters of recommendation, and items dealing with Stout's term as the U. S. Commissioner of Education. The collection also contains several miscellaneous notebook pages pertaining to Samuel Stout (Folder 4) and to his mother, Katherine Tannehill Stout (Folder 1). The pages relating to Samuel Stout are handwritten copies of articles that appeared in the July 1869 edition of The Masonic Record. These articles include the Masonic Bylaws (revised in 1817), a biography of S. V. D. Stout, and a list of the University of Nashville's 1827 graduates, which includes Samuel Hollingsworth Stout. The notebook pages dealing with Katherine Tannehill Stout consist of an essay she wrote entitled The Old Church at Hopewell. This work contains a short genealogy of the Stout family and a history of the Hopewell Church in New Jersey.
The library possesses several of the journals that published Stout's articles, including the Confederate Veteran (Special Collections / Rare books: E482 .C74) and the Southern Practitioner (Special Collections / Rare books: R11 .S72).
