Scope and Content Note
This collection includes correspondence, dance cards, newspaper clippings, photographs, and a scrapbook. Assembled by Franklin, the scrapbook is primarily made up of newspaper clippings that document Franklin's involvement on the legendary "Ironmen" football team of 1933 as well as the other members of that team. The photographs and loose clippings also relate to Franklin's experience as a football player. There are also obituaries for Franklin and images of his gravesite included among the clippings and images. The correspondence consists of two letters of condolence to Franklin's widow received shortly after his death in 1947.
