             Scope and Contents note 
             The English family papers (dated 1873-1983, undated; 12.2 cubic feet; 31 boxes) consist of correspondence, diaries, poetry, plays, sermons, account books, songs, audiocassettes, grooved audio discs, and photographs, which document several generations of Baptist ministers and writers in Paris and Henderson, Ky. The papers primarily document the work of poet, folk singer, actor, and playwright Logan Eberhardt English and contain many of his original songs and poems. English's papers contain drafts of his unfinished play based on the life of Cassius Clay (Box 12-13) and a copy of his notable album 
                 Logan English Sings the Woody Guthrie Songbag  (Box 29, Item 6). Additionally, the papers contain materials generated by English's father Logan B. English, a baptist minister; his maternal grandfather, poet Frederick W. Eberhardt; and the LaRue family of Bourbon County, related to English through his mother. Notably, the LaRue family materials consist of account books relating to hemp farming in the late 19th century. The papers also contain several programs from literature societies in Paris and Henderson where Eberhardt and Logan B. English read their works in the late 19th century and early 20th century.
