In a Dusty Vault, An Abundance of Lee Family Relics
Trunks Discovered in Alexandria Bank
By Linda Wheeler
More than 80 years after the death of Mary Custis Lee, eldest and most
daughter of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, two steamer trunks full of her
papers and travel souvenirs have been found in an Alexandria bank vault.
The wooden trunks -- containing family letters, photographs, clippings of her
father's obituary, strands of hair collected from royalty on European trips
rarely taken by other single women of her era -- came to light after an
inquiry from a descendant.

In Harvard Papers, a Dark Corner of the College's Past
By THE NEW YORK TIMES
AMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 29 — About six months ago Amit R. Paley, a writer for
