Additionally, they contain a large amount of material from her involvement with the United States Democratic Party and the Kentucky Democratic Party. Mary Mamie Brinker Bryan's papers include family correspondence and letters from former newspaper colleagues who wrote to their Miss Mary with affection and admiration.

Biographical note Florence McDowell Shelby Cantrill (1888-1981), a prominant female politician, was the daughter of Wallace and Margaret (Bryan) Shelby and a descendant of many prominant Kentucky families, including the Bryans, Boones, Shelbys, and McDowells. On her mother's side, Mary Boone, the sister of Daniel Boone, married William Bryan the founder of Bryan Station. Their son Daniel Bryan built Waveland, an antebellum historic mansion. and Mary Brinker Bryan were descendants of the Boones and the Bryans. Isaac Shelby, Kentucky's first governor, and Dr. Ephraim McDowell, pioneer surgeon, were Florence Cantrill's great-great-grandfathers on her father's side. Florence Cantrill was elected as a delegate to Kentucky's Democratic Convention in 1920. The convention was a landmark meeting as the first time women participated in the election process. In 1933 Cantrill won a seat in the Kentucky Legislature, becoming the first woman elected to represent Fayette county. As a legislator, she encouraged Kentucky's representatives to ratify the Child Labor Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In order to reinforce backing for the bill, Cantrill invited Frances Perkins, President Roosevelt's Secretary of Labor, to speak to the Kentucky Legislature. Despite her speech, the bill died in committee. Additionally, starting in 1935, Cantrill served two terms as the first woman Lexington City Commissioner, served as acting mayor, and as Fayette County's chair directing the activities of the women of the Democratic Party. In 1938, Alben Barkley personally requested Florence Cantrill to head the Woman's Division of the Democratic party in Kentucky working on his reelection campaign. Her unstinting efforts were instrumental in Senator Barkley's return to Washington, D.C. Florence Cantrill was also an active clubwoman, belonging to the Woman's Club of Central Kentucky and The Monday Club. She served as the President of the Woman's Club and chaired the current events and citizenship departments for many years. Her interest in church affairs led her to write an epic poem as part of the golden anniversary celebration, 1896-1946, of the Woman's Auxiliary in the Episcopal Diocese of Lexington. Ten years later, she wrote an article to mark its sixtieth year. In addition, for several years she served on the Vestry of Christ Church. Margaret Shelby Cantrill Worsham, only daughter of Florence and Cecil Cantrill, was the assistant Director of the University of Kentucky Student Center and associated with the Dean of Students Office for twenty years before her retirement in 1979. In 1982, the theater in the Student Center addition was named the Worsham Theater to honor Margaret Worsham's contributions to the University of Kentucky. Mary Mamie Brinker Bryan (1863-1933), Florence Cantrill's aunt, lived with the Cantrills for many years until her death in 1933. In 1894, Mary Bryan became the first woman member of a Lexington newspaper when she joined the staff of the Republican newspaper, the Lexington Leader, at the invitation of Samuel Roberts, the editor. In September 1919, after working as the society editor for 25 years, she shifted her allegiance to the Lexington Herald, the Democratic paper published by Desha Breckinridge.
