Stanton, head of the Florida National Egg Laying Contest in Chipley, Florida.

Divided into two sections: campus correspondence and state correspondence. Each section is arranged alphabetically by name or subject. The letters are grouped together within the folders by year, but there is no chronological sequence to the letters.
