Biographical Note: This collection of papers was donated to the Albert Gore Research Center anonymously to honor Ms. Ethel Rankin, a horse enthusiast. Ms. Rankin’s daughter Caroline Reynolds was one of the first women to conduct contract photography for the Associated Press. Many of her 1940s-era photographs are included in this collection.

Scope and Content: The collection includes Murray Farm Catalogs, issues of The National Horseman magazine, newspaper articles, programs related to the Tennessee Walking Horse, and photographs by Rankin’s daughter Carolyn Reynolds, who in the 1940s was one of the first women to photograph for the Associated Press. Some of the clippings included in the materials are of Margaret Lindsley Warden’s “Horse Sense” column for the Tennessean.

Associated Materials: There are no known associated materials.

Related Collections: The Margaret Lindsley Ward Library for Equine Studies, as well as other collections in the Albert Gore Research Center’s Equestrian holdings, is a valuable resource for information on the Tennessee Walking Horse.

Bob Womack’s Papers in the Albert Gore Research Center’s University holdings also include information on horsemanship.
