A former resident of the Fountain Inn—a retirement facility once adjacent to the Poynter Library that was demolished in February 2004—Betty Morris acquired a small scrapbook of clippings from a World’s Fair in the 1890s and various materials describing transportation issues in central Florida in the mid-twentieth century. The scrapbook contains clippings and hand-copied poetry, prayers, and letters collected by Ms. Morris's mother, Gussie Palmer Morris (nee Colcock), who was the granddaughter of Benjamin Morgan Palmer, a well-known Louisiana preacher from the Civil War and Reconstruction years.
